In the twelve major cases featured in this compelling book, justice was won not just for the benefit of Bergers clients, but for each and every one of us. Berger may be best known for his championing of aboriginal rights, including early advocacy that laid the foundations for the precedent-setting Nisgaa Treaty, but as this book makes clear, he has made a comparable impact upon a panoply of other causes, often representing those whose rights are ignored or neglected by the status quo. All were seminal tests of natural justice: union workers pilloried for refusing to work on a bridge they feared unsafe- a senior civil servant wrongfully dismissed and slandered by a vengeful politician- a Quaker thwarted by the government in her attempts to prevent her tax dollars from being used for military purposes- a girl rendered brain damaged and quadriplegic by a botched hospital procedure- a woman bereft of any memory of her early life by medical experimentation carried out without her consent, and more.
