McGill Awards Top Honour to Prof. Irwin Cotler

Professor Cotler, the former Justice Minister of Canada, and one of the great human rights lawyers and defenders of political prisoners of our time, embodies these values. His tireless advocacy for human rights dissidents worldwide; his passion for justice and the cause of peace; and his infectious idealism, sincerity, and integrity have inspired so many to help make the world a better place.

"The pursuit of justice is equal to all the other commandments combined."
