"Let's compare that to the actual record of the prior Liberal governments. As cited in this report (http://www.fraserinstitute.ca/admin/books/chapterfiles/Dec05ffRiddell.pdf), in 2003, just over half of federal Liberal appointees had donated to the Liberal party. In 2005, CanWest News Service found that more than 60% of judges appointed by the Liberals between 2000 and 2005 had donated to the Liberal party."

Dirty politicians selling judgeships to their biggest donators:

That's Liberal.

That's not good enough for Canada.

Anon,

Fuck off. The Fraser Institute? No, they don't have an agenda. You are either a shill or a fool. CanWest? It might as well come out of Harper's own politburo

60% donated to the Liberal Party. How many Donated to the Conservatives? How many donated to BOTH?

And how does that prove they were beholden to the Liberals once on the bench? How does that prove the kind of judicial activism you imply?

Correlation does not mean causation. You have not yet proven causation.

And even if I take what you say as true (which I do not) since it is so bad for the Liberals to do this kind of thing, why is it okay for the Conservatives to do it?

Grow up hypocrite.

harper altered the make-up of the selection panel by taking away a qualified seat and adding a partisan one. it's indefensible from a judicial point of view. so lots of shills will be trying to sell it to the public. canwest is nothing but a pamphlet.

Sniff, sniff,....

Do smell that? It smells like an election, yup. Harper has unleashed his rightwing political trolls loose on the net. No lie is too outragous, no mud is too slimey. No balance of facts required.

Just add rightwong hatred and let the dawgies loose.

You should check out the Galloping Beavers site where a neo-clown troll/fool dared to question Dave's millitary background. Cheryl tore the fool a new arsehole big enough to fit Harper's fat ass.

I'm looking at this picture of Harper you have in this post, and I just can't help myself,....

Zorph : should I?

Little Devil : Yes you should,...

Zorph : But it is evil,...

Little Devil : Ya, but it is evil in a good way,...

Zorph : So it is a good kind of evil?

Little Devil : Yes, go for it,...

Zorph : But it is nasty,...

Little Devil : Harper deserves it,...

Zorph : What does the good Angel have to say?

Little Angel : Oh good ahead, kick Harper in the nads, he deserve it (and we never like him anyways

That's Liberal.

Okay, so please explain to us how it is acceptable for HarperCrit to do something even more blatant?

How is it that Harper can run on a platform of "more open, honest and accountable" government, and then turn around and blatantly politicize the judiciary? Wouldn't it be a _REAL_ reform to actually put in place committees that know how to evaluate a candidate's qualifications instead of their political leanings?


Hmmm?

Because in the minds of many, the false equivalency has become their rhetorical soma.

And we owe this to folks like those that run things like the FI where everything false is equivalent as long as it furthers their agenda (see: Change, Climate, Deniers).

Hey CC, do you have a larger version of this image of Harper, it's just has so much potential for abuse.

Mike... a fool for other fools to worship. You are guilty of the same thing with the fraser institute and Can West.
Then again, if you get your facts from the Guerilla news and communist quarterly, I'm not shocked.
