950 THE ADVOCATE VOL. 75 PART 6 NOVEMBER 2017 irrepressible Rick Craig who filled this role since JES’s creation back in 1989. While Mr. Craig sails off into a well-deserved retirement, Ms. Paulin will take up the reins at JES. Ms. Poulin hails originally from Quebec; she received a master’s degree in library and information studies from McGill and an M.B.A. from Strathclyde University Business School and is completing a bachelor of laws, international programmes, with the University of London. She is an energetic force of nature who has held various positions over time, including stints in Vancouver. Most recently she was the director of Alberta law libraries and information services in Edmonton. Jude Pierre Samson was appointed a full-time member of the Social Security Tribunal for the Appeal Division, to hold office during good behaviour for a term of two years, effective August 10, 2017. Maureen Baird has also been appointed to the Tribunal’s Appeal Division on a part-time basis. Last year, Justice Anthony Roy Gubbay, the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Zimbabwe, now retired to Vancouver, gave a lunchtime lecture at a Lunching with Leaders session put on by the Law Courts Inn. Justice Gubbay was originally appointed by Robert Mugabe in 1990 but then forced to retire in 2001. He is revered as a judicial lion of African justice. Speaking of Justice Gubbay, Wildy & Sons Ltd. of London, law book sellers since 1830, have now published a judicial biography titled Anthony Roy Gubbay: A Judicial Life. This wonderful review of the life and work of Justice Gubbay was edited by George Douvelos and includes a forward by the Honourable Lance Finch, Q.C. The Plympton, Plymstock & Ivybridge News ran the following notice: “LOST PET. Tortoise in West Alvington. New home and I didn’t check fences well enough. Name is Hector. Don’t bother calling him, he won’t answer.” KeyCorp sought to combine affiliate banks in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio through “complex applications and a master plan” that proposed “instantaneous steps and maneuvers that would equal the actions of a Fred Astaire or a Gene Kelley”. A court sided with the Commissioner of the Michigan Financial Institutions Bureau setting aside lower-level approval for the dance: McQueen v. Williams, 1999 FED App. 0177P (6th Cir.). 2017 is the 150th anniversary of the “Blue Danube” waltz by the Austrian composer, Johann Strauss II. It was prominently (and poignantly) used as the defining musical moment that saw humans evolve from early hominids to spacefaring astronauts in Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
