On June 5

On this day in ...
... 1876 (135 years ago today), the Supreme Court of Canada held its 1st sitting at which cases were heard; 3 cases were disposed of in this week. (credit for Library and Archives Canada photo of the courtroom in the Old Court Building, Ottawa) The court would reconvene and begin to hold regular sessions the following January.
