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.
