The judge said this

Unhappily, the author of these words is not Justice Anne W. MacKenzie:

“Upon reviewing the evidence of Mr. X’s conduct and applying the ethical rules and guidelines in force at the relevant times, I find that Mr. X contravened . . . the 1985 Ethics Code, which provides that public office holders have an obligation to act in a manner that will bear the closest public scrutiny, an obligation that is not fully discharged by simply acting within the law,” . . .

“In my view, Canadians are entitled to expect from those who govern, particularly the holders of high office, exemplary conduct in their professional and personal lives. [They] must live up to the standards of conduct expected of them in order to preserve the integrity of government.”
