Barbara Kay: Of course Justin Trudeau wants bilingual judges: he’s the product of bilingual privilege

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s seventh appointment to the Supreme Court of Canada is Justice Russell Brown, of the Alberta Court of Appeal, who will replace Justice Marshall Rothstein upon his Aug 31 retirement. Holding a doctorate in juridical science from the University of Toronto, and a member of the bars of both B.C. and Alberta, the 50-something Brown is domiciled in Edmonton, where he also serves as an appeal judge for the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

It’s not as if anyone needed another reason to dismiss Justin as a fool, but this is a pretty good one.

I suspect his Royal Airheadedness will be out on his Butts after the election.

    I think Trudeau gets two elections as leader.
    This one’s a mulligan.

          ‘That’s a non-sensical question’ delivered with a smirk. OK Mr. Genius, why is it a non-sensical question? It didn’t seem so to me.

    Beautiful! I like that.

    • That is good.

      Sling it back at them, eh?

    Yes, but Harper doesn’t wear pretty beads at gay pride parades. Besides Chatelaine magazine says all women will vote for Justin because he is so young and cool.

      Yeah ladies, vote for that 40 something baby murderer. Actions have consequences.

    Bilingual Federal assets are code words for flooding the Federal systems with Quebecers only.

      Especially since it has no relation with a judge’s professional abilities and qualifications.

  • Frances

    Justin doesn’t like Albertans, and thinks they are poor at governing our country. This is one way of ensuring Albertans and – generally speaking – anyone west of eastern Ontario doesn’t get a say in top judicial decisions.

    His dingy has sprung a leak… but God help us if he does become PM. Ontario voted in Wynne with a majority. So anything is possible.

      Pyrrhic victory — the Phony Cons stayed home and sat on their hands.

      In the realm of impossibilities you left out the train wreck in Alberta.

      Right now, Tommy the Commie appears to be the greater threat, Justin having shot himself in both feet.

      Scary times we live in.
