Tête à Tête

Andrée Ruffo

The Revue Politique “Tête à Tête” series delves into the lives of newsmakers, movers and shakers. In these in-depth and personal conversations, Pierre Donais sits down with guests to discuss their life experiences and to reveal what drives them today.

In this episode, Pierre speaks with Andrée Ruffo, a former judge with the Youth Division of the Court of Quebec.

Ms. Ruffo made a name for herself in Quebec with unorthodox judgements which she thought would help underprivileged children but which didn’t always follow the law. In October 2004, the Judicial Council of Quebec recommended that she be removed from the bench for breaches of professional ethics. In May 2006, she decided to resign before the Attorney General of Quebec could remove her from the bench.
