TORONTO, April 18 /CNW/ - Justice Archie Campbell was a highly respected
jurist who embodied the best characteristics of the bench: a deep knowledge
and respect of the law, and the wisdom to apply it fairly.
Called on to head inquiries into several significant public events,
including 2003's SARS outbreak, Justice Campbell was entrusted with
investigating and restoring public confidence in provincial institutions at
times when Ontarians felt vulnerable.
News of his passing last night has left many at the Ministry of the
Attorney General sad, but reflective on his immense contributions to our
province. As deputy to attorneys general Roy McMurtry and Ian Scott prior to
being appointed to the bench, he is fondly remembered for his devotion, skill
and compassion in service to the citizens of Ontario.
On behalf of the government of Ontario, I offer my condolences to Justice
Campbell's family and friends.
