Mr. Justice Charles Dubin, 87

CTV News reports the passing today of Charles Dubin, former Chief Justice of Ontario:

Dubin was well-known in the legal world for his keen intellect and a no-nonsense manner.

However, he was perhaps best known to the public for a high profile commission he headed in 1989.

Known as the Dubin inquiry, the commission was formed after sprinter Ben Johnson lost his gold medal at the 1988 Seoul Olympics because a banned drug was detected in his urine samples.

In a groundbreaking report, Dubin exposed doping secrets that had been unknown outside the secretive world of track and field, and he recommended a broad range of anti-doping measures.
