Calgary judge in hot seat for inappropriate comments to students.

The Canadian Judicial Council is reviewing complaints about a Calgary judge who confessed to making inappropriate and racially sensitive comments to University of Calgary law students.

Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Kristine Eidsvik apologized to a class of second-year students for the comments she made last week, where she told the class she was uncomfortable walking into a room “full of big dark people,” and that she was used to being in an “ivory tower,” away from the “riff-raff.”

Spokesperson for the judicial counsel, Johanna Laporte, said they have received two complaints that will be reviewed by its conduct committee.
