Gloriane Blais renounces to participate in the “psychiatric evaluation order” that would have been ordered by the Board of Directors of the Barreau du Québec. This is what a letter that she would have sent to the Bâtonniere of Quebec, Catherine Claveau, reveals.
Me Blais sent a copy of this letter to the Droit-inc newsroom earlier last week.
“For our part, we wish to continue to contribute to our Canadian justice system through our integrity, our deep sense of justice and our voice. Consequently, we wish immensely to preserve our title of lawyer which we hold since May 1999. But, we will not comply with an order which does not have any common sense, your order of psychiatric evaluation against us. It is an attack on our dignity and our psychic integrity (…)”, mentions an extract from his missive.
Droit-inc reported last week that Gloriane Blais would be subject to an order for a “medical examination”, ordered by the Board of Directors of the Bar.
She first claimed in a video that she would participate in this assessment. She would have changed her mind after two hearings which would have taken place with the Board of Directors on February 9 and 14.
