Which is the Chief Chief Justice - David Lynch Scott or Horace Harvey
AbstractThe creation of the Judicature Act in Alberta in 1919 and its amendments in 1920 led to a period of profound confusion within Alberta's judicial system. Two men, David Lynch Scott and Horace Harvey, were at the centre of this confusion. By exploring personal letters written by Horace Harvey and others, Dean Bowker exposes how the two judges and others behaved and felt as the question of who was the real Chief Justice in Alberta was argued through the Supreme Court and finally to the Privy Council. The letters illustrate that although this was a difficult time for the two men, both treated each other with respect and did what they could to ensure that the issue did not turn into a personal battle between themselves.
