The Tone-Policing Canadian Bar Association


Just read the article where the Canadian Bar Association is saying how the public is 'free to criticize' but all the 'name calling' and 'personal attacks' towards a particular local judge is 'unacceptable'. The CBA was also kind enough to reminded everybody that any 'reasonable' and 'informed' member of the public would want this person as a judge. So any member of the public who doesn't want this person as a judge is just an unreasonable uninformed name-calling dumb-ass? Believing in the independence of the judiciary and how important it is for judges to be able to make decisions in accordance to the law and the their judgement without fearing removal is NOT irreconcilable with believing with the need for a judiciary that competently handles sexual assault cases. The public is legitimately angry at apparently erroneous handling of a sexual assault case. I suppose Robin Camp was also unfairly treated by the angry mob? –You're not 'unreasonable' for being pissed...don't be gas lit
