Stephen Harper's New and Foul Assault on the Justice System



Well I guess Stephen Harper wasn't kidding. If the courts wouldn't kneel before him he would debase them into submission.

Not by simply soiling himself.

But by soiling the entire justice system as only he could.

By among other foul things appointing an Ontario judge who clearly doesn't believe in the equality of gay Canadians. 

A law professor named an Ontario judge this week wrote two years ago for a conservative, U.S.-based institute that the legalization of same-sex marriage in Canada has harmed religious freedom and free speech, and led to the “indoctrination” of children in public schools. 

Bradley Miller, a constitutional specialist at Western University in London, Ont., said the “new orthodoxy” about gay marriage in Canada means that those who object to it are treated as bigots and denied their rights as parents, workers, pamphleteers or religious believers.

Doesn't seem to understand that human rights must trump religious rights every day of the week, or we will end up living in a theocracy instead of a democracy.

Or that bigots are not victims...



Even if they scream like bloodthirsty beasts. 

And as if that wasn't enough, the Cons did debase themselves further by appointing a new Supreme Court Justice, who was never a judge, but did as a lawyer defend Big Tobacco.

Seems to have trouble with her expense accounts. 

The newest member of the Supreme Court of Canada is a corporate law expert, but a lengthy fight to be able to deduct more than $200,000 in clothing and “personal care” expenses from her annual earnings has given her a unique window into the tax system.

And apparently doesn't believe she needs to justify her expensive claims.

Revenu Québec noted in a statement of defence that it began auditing Côté’s expense claims in 2007 and that she refused on four separate occasions to provide receipts or other documents that would justify her claims.


And really sometimes there is nothing more that needs to be said. 

Except as I warned so long ago, that if the monster is not restrained and eventually defeated. 

He will debase this country beyond recognition.

Kill everything good and decent.

And corrupt EVERYTHING he touches...

  1. Simon unfortunately after he is uncrowned as King of Red Communist China/Kanada it will take many years to undo his destructive BS to our country. A lawyer that does not provide receipts for expenses is equal to Ezra Levant not admitting how much right wing US money he gets to continue slandering and attacking opponents of Tarberta and Harper cons. Then there is the Fraser Institute who is mostly funded by the Koch brothers who are also homophobic and I suspect that is the same trough EZ Levant feeds from but he won't tell.

    1. hi lungta...yes didn't you just LOVE that line. As you point out it should be a call to arms. All decent Canadians must put their country before their parties and do what they must to remove that scourge from our land. For again as you point out, if they fail history will never forgive them...

    this is what you see in the American legal system. You have to only look at Alabama for what can go wrong with judges who are there for "political purposes". (see Legal Snzauzzer blog) One former governor went to jail, for something which wasn't a crime, at the time things went down. but a republican appointed judge sent him to jail. Oh the governor had been a democrat. If this is the way harper and his cons are appointing judges, expect to see a whole lot more Canadians go to jail. Its how 2 million Americans got put in jail. They elected/appointed judges who were republicans and anti just about everything that wasn't right wing, white, tea bagging. They have brought the system to Canada. Can their privitized jails be far behind?

    He told us we won't recognize Canada when he was through, and he is keeping his promise. Now he has begun his assault on the judicial system. As these judges "work" for harper they will eventually be moved to more prominent positions and then not even the courts will be able to stop harper and his cons. We will have only ourselves to blame.

    1. hi e.a.f...yes the Harper Cons are now trying to Americanize the courts, the last bastion of Canadian values. For as I said in my post everything he touches he does corrupt.But I'm still confident that Canadians will see the light, and that we will defeat them in the next election...

    So Steve has apparently moved from appointing the likes of Duffy, Brazeau and Wallin to the Senate to appointing the likes of Cote and Miller to the SCC. Bet that the appointment of Cote likely cost some raised eyebrows, if not angst, among at least some of the SCC Judges.

    Seriously, how many Canadians try to deduct $200K in clothing and personal care costs from their taxes? In fact, how many Canadians can even afford to spend $200K in clothing and personal care? In fact, how many Canadians even earn $200K?

    Reminds me of Eva Adams, the rather infamous Cons MP and darling wife of Dimitri Soudas, apparently Dear Leader's ex favorite son, who had reportedly tried to write off visits to nail saloons and costs of tooth paste/teeth whitener from her election expenses until stopped by EC.

    Unfortunately, it looked like neither the Libs nor the NDP even so much as protested the appointments of Cote and Miller, perhaps because they were too busy snarling at each other.

    1. hi anon...unfortunately Harper is actually seeking to cause as much angst as possible to the courts. He hates them with a passion, and as I said in the post, what he can't destroy he will debase. And yes, I also wish that the opposition parties would stop sniping at each other and focus on destroying the real enemy. Polls show that Canadians would strongly favour a coalition to get rid of the Harperites, so if they fail they will both pay a huge price...

    When Harper cheated to win the election, with his robo-call fraud? He should have been forced to resign, right then and there. Harper is our own fault, we have tolerated that evil entity in our country. Harper is every bit as insane as Hitler was.

    In Harper's insanity? He sold Canada to Communist China with his FIPPA deal. Harper is a traitor doing acts of treason for, selling Canada to Communist China. And, there sits the opposition on their a$$e$$ and have done nothing about Harper's treachery. Harper is an evil tyrant, that belongs in prison.

    We have to be prepared for Harper's evil doings behind our backs, this x-mas break as well. Harper is one sick monster, just as the dictator's of the 30's and 40's were.

    1. hi anon...you're right, Harper should have been forced to resign a long time ago. If the hapless Governor General Michelle Jean had done her job we might have been rid of him at the time of the prorogation crisis. But that's okay, defeating him will be even more satisfying....

    Mulcair is crossing over to the Lib side and taking most of his M.P.'s with him. There is your next majority right there. Tommy-boy was always a Lib disguised in Dipper clothing anyway. Now we will see the end of harpie's crime cabal but hello amerikan two party political system here in Canada. I hope we don't go the way of the states. God Bless and Help Us.

    1. hi anon...I wish that was true, but sooner or later the Liberals and the NDP will be forced to work together, and we will have justice. As for the two party system that doesn't bother me. If we had proportional representation we could manage with more parties. But with the system we have only one progressive party or coalition can do the job...

  9. Harper is an extreme fundamentalist who is as dangerous to Canada as the Taliban. He should be hanging his head in shame instead of trying to get re-elected (assuming he doesn't chicken out).

  10. We need justice to fight for our rights as a human and as a son and daughters of God. I hope that we will all claim for our right.
