Judge Dredd or Dreadful Judge?

August 15, 2012 note: This post mistakingly implies that Tropak and Larkin were nominees for the judgeship. They weren't. They were nominees for the Federal Advisory Committee for Manitoba, which selects the judge. See more here.

Well, Vic "with us or with the child pornographers" Toews may be considered for a position on the Manitoba Court of Appeals, according to the Winnipeg Free Press. I hope these are just rumors, because Toews' blatant disregard for the rights of Canadians should make him morally unfit for the House of Commons, let alone the highest court of this great province. 

It's nice to see that the Federal Minister of Justice is also busy away nominating fellow CONs to the post. Marni "No Fly Zone" Larkin and (presumably) Shelly Glover campaign manager John Tropak 1 are both Federal Justice Minister nominees. 

Come to think of it, since Toews has some experience in constitutional law (which I'm sure he'll greatly abuse to rationalize privacy invasions by government bodies), he's the most qualified on merit, with the very notable exception of moral integrity.The official nominees are pretty obvious prospective patronage appointees.

I mean, what are the odds the same person's who's uber-qualified for the CBC Board of Directors would be uber-qualified for a judgeship?

1 It might not be that Justin Tropak, though it probably is.


  1. Is there one person in this country, other than maybe Vic Toews, who seriously thinks that Vic Toews is the best qualified person in all of Manitoba for the Court of Appeal?

    This has to be some kind of joke. He is not fit for the job.

  2. All those clowns you mentioned suffer from that lack of "moral integrity".
