Jeffrey Lem Profiled in Financial Post

Mitch Kowalski profiles Jeffrey Lem, recipient of FACL’s Lifetime Achievement Award, in this article and questions why there are still so few minorities appointed as judges. From the article:

So, we are left with a Bench that does not reflect the diversity of our nation and that is lacking in real estate knowledge and experience — yet a candidate that fills both roles admirably, and with distinction, remains on the sidelines. In baseball parlance, this is called riding the pine — instead of the Bench.
