Stephen Harper’s ‘attack’ on the Supreme Court Chief Justice

“There’s been some suggestion that rather than seek outside legal experts, I should have talked to the judges themselves. Let me just be clear that I would never do that. I think that the suggestion … I can tell you this … I think if people thought that the Prime Minister or other ministers of the government were consulting judges on cases before them, or even worse consulting judges on cases that might come before them before the judges themselves have the opportunity to hear the appropriate evidence, I think the entire opposition, entire media, and entire legal community would be outraged. So I don’t think that’s the appropriate way to go. The justices have to make their own decision based on the evidence that is put before them.”

– Stephen Harper
