Quebec's justice minister has asked the province's judicial council to investigate a municipal judge who reportedly acquitted a friend over a traffic violation the day before he was set to retire.

Sonia LeBel said Tuesday she sent a letter to the judicial council after reading about former municipal court judge Jean Herbert in the Journal de Montreal.

The Journal reported that last Feb. 4, Herbert moved forward a friend's court date so it wouldn't interfere with her planned vacation and then took 42 seconds to acquit her of a traffic violation. Before his retirement, Herbert sat on the bench in Longueuil, south of Montreal.

Herbert told the newspaper the woman acquitted, Diane Lelievre, was an artist and he had once bought a painting from her. Lelievre told the newspaper the judge was a patient of her spouse, an ophthalmologist.

Herbert also told the Journal he helped other friends by changing their court dates.

LeBel said she considers the facts reported in the article to be serious but declined to comment further.

Temporary traffic lights installed after ‘horrifying’ pedestrian collision caught on video.
Two temporary traffic lights have been installed in the Queensway neighbourhood after a “horrifying” video of a female pedestrian being struck by a minivan last month went viral, the city said. In the video first obtained by Newstalk 1010, a female pedestrian is seen pressing the button on a dedicated pedestrian crosswalk on the Queensway near Milton St., looking both ways and pointing to where she’s headed shortly before she’s struck by a vehicle on May 23. The video — posted a day after the incident — went viral and sparked alarm from many, including outrage from Mayor John Tory who issued calls to replace the crosswalk.
