The Canadian Civil Liberties Association has named Nathalie Des Rosiers the new General Counsel/Executive Director of the organization: http://www.ccla.org/Rosiers.pdf I'm not sure what to think of the announcement. Neither myself nor anyone I've talked to who is involved in the organization has ever heard of her, and she doesn't seem to have a particular commitment to civil liberties advocacy in her bio. On the other hand, it's nice to see a rather conservative organization name a female chief and Des Rosiers does have ties to Quebec and academic circles, both pluses in my book. I guess we'll just have to wish her the best and see what happens . . .
