Colin has an enhanced Government of Canada security clearance (Top Secret (SA)) and is a designated Special Advocate for national security cases.
When he is not litigating or advising clients, Colin pretends to be an athlete. An awesome Ultimate Frisbee player in his youth, he now contents himself with calling “lets” on the squash court and trundling around short, flat cross-country ski trails. Salmon angling, photography and wine collecting are other interests that his family grudgingly tolerates.
