Comparing Supreme Courts

Ours seem to have an ongoing outbreak of sane rulings. Much to the continued distress of he who appointed most of them, by the looks of it. Despite his distrust of them, and his intentions and plans, he really is a good judge of judicial talent. Now if we could simply confine him to that role alone.

Maybe, but I keep hearing about how smart he's supposed to be. Don't you think if he was limited to one job, he'd eventually get it (ahem) right?

More seriously, it occurs to me that one of the reasons he's had a hard time filling the bench with witless ideologues, is Canada hasn't (yet) had a lot of ideologically lunatic provincial governments bent on filling the lower courts with their fellow-travellers.

Keep your fingers crossed.
