Harper Stacks Judical Committees With Conservative Hacks

OTTAWA — The Conservative Government has skipped normal protocol for the committees that determine who can become a judge, selecting Tory hacks including former right wing politicians, aides to Conservative ministers, riding association officials and defeated tory candidates.

The powerful judicial advisory committees were created in 1988 to take partisan politics out of the appointment of judges. However Stephen Harper has broken with tradition and the people chosen by the federal justice minister are conservative partisans.

Most share Prime Minister Stephen Harper's desire to change the face of Canada's judiciary, which he has described as a group that holds a liberal bias, oversteps its role to make social policy, and is too soft on crime.

So much for Conservative Party ethics.


It's another example of Conservative waste, mismanagement, and corruption. I'm determined to throw that line back in their faces.
