Wilbur Roy JACKETT, Jurist (1912-2005)
Bad-tempered but committed chief justice of the Federal Court had an enormous impact on the administration of the law in Canada
By Sabitri GHOSH, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, November 7, 2005, Page S8
Kingston -- When an admirer wanted to write his biography, Wilbur JACKETT, the retired chief justice of the Federal Court of Canada, nearly dismissed the idea out of hand. It was, he opined with his signature bluntness, "a damn fool idea and waste of time."
But then, as he was wont to do, the judge reconsidered his position, eventually agreeing to tell the would-be biographer, Montreal lawyer Dick Pound, how he went from small-town Saskatchewan to engineering some of the most important developments in Canada's postwar legal system.
That he almost forfeited the chance to make his case to posterity was characteristic of a man to whom the opinions of others mattered little and who thought, Mr. Pound said, "judges' judgments should speak for themselves, and that's all you needed to know: A judge was what his judgment was."
Mr. JACKETT entered the University of Saskatchewan's law school in 1928, apparently at the urging of his stern, emotionally distant father. After an outstanding academic career, culminating in a Rhodes scholarship, he joined the Department of Justice in The department was then the busiest in Ottawa, the place where everyone else offloaded their legislative homework under the frenetic deadlines of the war. In the close quarters of the 10-person office, Mr. JACKETT's skill at crafting solid pieces of legislation fast -- he guessed that he drafted eight bills in his first year alone -- soon came to the attention of the deputy minister of justice, Frederick VARCOE. By the late 1940s, he was handling everything from staff recruitment and training to all civil litigation, so that his appointment as Mr. VARCOE's successor in 1957 surprised no one.
At 5-foot 4, with an ink-black, rubberstamp moustache, Mr. JACKETT inspired both respect and hostility within the department. He would reassign employees without consultation, demand they work evenings and weekends, and rail at them for minor mistakes. At the same time, he could be generous in recognizing and encouraging people's gifts, even those dissimilar from his own.
Marguerite RITCHIE, Canada's first female Queen's Counsel, saw both sides of Mr. JACKETT within the span of a few months. Then in charge of international law, she was called into his office and "informed that he didn't believe in international law," she said, "and that he was going to more or less watch everything that I was doing from then on."
Ms. RITCHIE apprehensively continued her work -- which at that time centred on the legal structure surrounding the United Nations until, one day, Mr. JACKETT called her back into his office: "He said he'd changed his mind and something to the effect that you really do need someone to assist you, which was a tremendous reversal." To her, this was evidence of his overriding sense of fairness.
Under Mr. JACKETT's direction, the department developed the 1953 Crown Liability Act, removing many archaic impediments that prevented citizens from suing the government. And, at the request of the Diefenbaker government, he was also responsible for drafting the Bill of Rights, a statutory precursor to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Despite these achievements, Mr. JACKETT wanted to sit on the bench and felt he had to -- in Mr. Pound's words -- "sanitize" himself for the role. Choosing Canadian Pacific Railway as his quarantine, he accepted a position as its general counsel in 1960. Once gone from the Department of Justice, he let it be known that he would welcome a judicial appointment, specifying the Exchequer Court of Canada as his first choice.
The itinerant court, which specialized in suits against the government and in federally regulated areas such as intellectual property and income tax, was widely considered sluggish and inefficient, with some of its cases running on for five years. Mr. JACKETT became its president in 1964 and right away stopped assigning judges to files until they finished writing their judgments in reserve. In the meantime, he and another judge took on virtually all new cases. Within a year, the backlog was cleared.
Impressed, the Department of Justice took note when Mr. JACKETT suggested replacing the Exchequer Court with a wholly new body whose jurisdiction would extend to rulings by federal tribunals, boards and commissions.
Then-justice minister John TURNER found the proposal both legally and politically appealing, and agreed to pilot the necessary legislation through Parliament. On June 1, 1971, the Federal Court of Canada officially opened, with Mr. JACKETT as its chief justice.
