Thomas Berger, QC OC OBC, was the leader of the British Columbia New Democratic Party for most of 1969, prior to Dave Barrett. Justice Berger may be best known for his work as the Royal Commissioner of the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline Inquiry which released its findings in 1977. Berger was elected, at the age of 29, to the House of Commons in the 1962 election, and elected to the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia in 1966. Appointed to the Supreme Court of British Columbia in 1972, he served on the bench until 1983. Berger focused extensively on ensuring that industrial development on Aboriginal people’s land resulted in benefits to those indigenous people. In 1981, Berger wrote an open letter to the Globe and Mail newspaper asserting that the rights of Aboriginal Canadians and women needed to be included in any proposed charter. Berger’s expertise and reputation for thorough and independent assessment were immediately seen as an asset for indigenous communities. In 1995, Thomas Berger was appointed Special Counsel to the Attorney General of BC to inquire into allegations of sexual abuse at the Jericho Hill School for the Deaf in British Columbia. Berger was appointed chair of the Vancouver Election Commission in 2003, and in 2005 as Conciliator to resolve the impasse of the Government of Canada, Government of Nunavut and Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated in reaching a common way forward for the Nunavut Land Claims Implementation Contract.
