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...
