Last week provincial court Judge Guy Chicoine fielded a phone call from federal Justice Minister Martin Cochon, and by the weekend it was confirmed that Chicoine was a Court of Queen's Bench justice, effective immediately.
...
"It certainly was a pleasant surprise," said Chicoine speaking from chambers in the Estevan Court House Monday morning.
Chicoine will continue to live in Estevan with his wife Gloria and family and will serve the court from this location.
...
Chicoine said that no Queen's Bench appointments are made without the candidate first making an application.But since he has been o­n the provincial bench for o­nly a year, the suddenness of this fast track appointment was somewhat surprising.
As with his provincial appointment, Chicoine said his total bilingual status probably served him in good stead.If there is a need for a trial in French in Saskatchewan, Chicoine will be o­ne of the few who will be qualified to hear it out.
The local judicial centre being served by Chicoine is o­ne of 13 in the province.There are just 38 Queen's Bench justices serving in the province.
The elevation of Chicoine will now leave a gap in the provincial system, but no appointments are expected until well after today's provincial election results are known.
...
Chicoine said his time as a provincial court judge will be very useful.He said often the Queen's Bench cases become more complex and family law and criminal law trials with juries become more demanding for all concerned.
He said his dealings with criminal law cases this past year, in particular, will go a long way toward helping him make good measured decisions.
Chicoine said he did not hesitate in making the decision to accept the appointment.
He said with experience at the Queen's Bench level he should o­nly get better in directing the court room traffic, testimonies and directions to juries.
He laughed and said that when he was a lawyer, he had complained about the fact that the local jurisdiction didn't have a local judge o­n many occasions.
Chicoine replaced Judge Clifford Toth o­n the provincial bench in late October of 2002 when Toth was transferred to Regina.
Prior to his judicial appointment, Chicoine practised law in Estevan and area for over 22 years.
...
Chicoine is an active member of the L'Association des juristes d'expression francaise de la Saskatchewan and has been since 1988.
From 1995 to 2001 Chicoine also served as a member of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal Panel.
The official swearing in ceremony for Chicoine will be held in the court house in Estevan o­n Thursday afternoon, November 13 at 3 o'clock. < script language=JavaScript src="http://www.estevanmercury.ca/end.js">< /script>
