A concern regarding the appointments of Justices Andromache Karakatsanis and Michael Moldaver to the Supreme Court is that they may skew the Court's ideological balance to the right. As a bleeding-heart small "l" liberal, writing this over a soy latte and quinoa salad packed for lunch, you'd think I would be more worried.
Parliament has grown dysfunctional, with too little transparency. But while reform is desirable, the result may not be. Consider the "new" process for approving Supreme Court of Canada nominees. The only feisty moments occurred when an NDP MP challenged Moldaver over his inability to speak French.
