Profile of New Federal Justice Minister

The Lawyers Weekly has a profile of the new federal justice minister Rob Nicholson: New justice minister guided by faith and family (vol. 26, no. 34)

The article essentially says we should not expect any significant changes in policy.

"Much has been made of Nicholson’s and [predecessor Vic] Toews’s different personal styles – Toews can be caustic and abrasive while Nicholson tends to be low key and non-confrontational – but they share a similar conservative social and religious world view that is pro-life and anti-same-sex marriage".

"Nor will Nicholson have qualms about taking over as point man for the government’s many 'tough-on-crime' measures that must still be stick-handled through the minority Parliament".
