Noreen Shanahan of The Globe & Mail wrote an obituary of Alexandra Dodger, the McGill law student struck by a car and killed at the age of 27.
Colleagues praised Dodger for exhibiting qualities all law students and young lawyers should have: rock hard principles, outstanding courage and dedication to helping people.
“If we had more people like [Dodger] going through our law schools, we would have a completely different society,” said Toronto lawyer Omar Ha-Redeye.
She was strong, argumentative and articulate. She was warm, vulnerable and inspired. Had she made it to 30, who knows what she would have accomplished?
