The first Black justice to sit on a provincial appellate court in Canada, has been appointed as the new Chief Justice of Ontario.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau described Michael Tulloch  as a highly respected member of the legal community.

The former Crown attorney in Peel and Toronto was first admitted to the bar in 1991 before he was appointed a judge of the Superior Court of Justice for Ontario in 2003.

The Jamaican-born, Osgoode Hall Law School-educated justice has led independent reviews of Ontario’s police oversight system and street check regulations.

The appointment of the 60-year-old was cheered by members of the Black community.
