February 13 to 15, 2007 – Liberals attack the government on changes to the judicial appointment committee, claiming the government wants to undermine the Charter of Rights and Freedoms as part of a hidden right-wing neo-conservative agenda.
Liberal MPs imply that police officers appointed to judicial selection committees would be biased and vote to select “right-wing” judges.
When will the Prime Minister stop trying to undermine the independence of the Judiciary? When will he stop trying to impose his conservative ideology on the Canadian court system?
– Liberal MP Michael Ignatieff
