    a veranda reception with hors d’oeuvres from 6 -7;
    followed by a fine dinner with wine in the ballroom.

    Peter Baines has again arranged for a short tour of the RCYC’s island facilities conducted by RCYC Archivist and Curator, Beverley Darville.


    Join fellow Whiffers and guests on Monday, June 3rd.

    Please Note: RSVPs for the June Bash are NOT complete
    until your Interac pre-payment is received before May 29th 
    and you receive a final confirmation notice.

    Sorry, but the deadline to RSVP for the June Bash has passed.

    John Tory, Broadcaster, Businessman, Politician, September 24, 2024

    John Howard Tory OOnt KC (born May 28, 1954) is a Canadian broadcaster, businessman, and former politician who served as the 65th mayor of Toronto from 2014 to 2023. He served as leader of the Official Opposition in Ontario from 2005 to 2007 while he was leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario from 2004 to 2009. After a career as a lawyer, political strategist and businessman, Tory ran as a mayoral candidate in the 2003 Toronto municipal election and lost to David Miller. Tory was subsequently elected as Ontario PC leader from 2004 to 2009, and was a member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario representing Dufferin—Peel—Wellington—Grey and serving as the leader of the Opposition in Ontario from 2005 to 2007. After his resignation as PC leader in 2009, Tory became a radio talk show host on CFRB. Despite widespread speculation, Tory did not run for mayor again in 2010. He was also the volunteer chair of the non-profit group CivicAction from 2010 to 2014. On October 27, 2014, Tory was elected mayor of Toronto, defeating incumbent mayor Rob Ford’s brother, councillor Doug Ford and former councillor and member of Parliament (MP) Olivia Chow. On October 22, 2018, he was re-elected mayor of Toronto in the 2018 mayoral election, defeating former chief city planner Jennifer Keesmaat. He was elected to a third term as mayor on October 24, 2022, after defeating urbanist Gil Penalosa.

    Marie Henein LL.M., Partner, Henein Hutchison Robitaille LLP, October 29, 2024

    An Evening with Marie Henein Marie Henein has been a respected criminal defence lawyer for years, but she became a household name while defending former CBC radio host Jian Ghomeshi during his sexual assault trial – a case that she won. In the aftermath of that victory, Henein was called anti-feminist, unethical, a traitor to her gender. The backlash also launched a discussion, especially in legal circles, about whether the public understands the role of the justice system and, in particular, criminal defence lawyers. (see A love letter to Marie Henein)
    Click here to jump to the RSVP below the speaker’s bio.
    Called to the Ontario Bar in 1992, Ms. Henein is a Senior Partner at Henein Hutchison Robitaille LLP. She is widely recognized as one of the most prominent litigators in Canada, with extensive experience as lead counsel on high-profile criminal, civil, and regulatory cases. In addition to her broad criminal law practice, Ms. Henein’s experience includes acting as lead counsel for plaintiffs and defendants in class actions and in respect of major civil and commercial disputes. Ms. Henein has argued at all levels of court, including the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. Ms. Henein is a frequent lecturer nationally. She was an Adjunct Professor at Osgoode Hall Law School where she was co-chair of the Masters of Law Program. She frequently lectures at the Law Society of Ontario, The Advocates’ Society, the Ontario Bar Association, Criminal Lawyers’ Association and the National Judicial Institute in numerous areas including trial advocacy, evidence and appellate advocacy. She is the author of her 2021 memoir, Nothing But The Truth and is co-editor of Martin’s Criminal Code. She is the Associate Editor of the Canadian Criminal Cases. Ms. Henein was awarded in 2024 a Doctor of Laws, honoris causa (LLD) by the Law Society of Ontario. She is also the recipient of the 2023 Martin Medal Award, the 2013 Laura Legge Award and has repeatedly been named one of Canada’s 25 Most Influential Lawyers by Canadian Lawyer Magazine. In 2017, Ms. Henein was the recipient of The Law Society Medal for outstanding service to the administration of justice.

    Join fellow Whiffers on Tuesday, Oct 29th to hear an unvarnished view on the ethical and practical implications of being a female criminal lawyer, and how the job is misunderstood and even demonized. The reception at the RCYC begins at 6:00 pm.
