Smear and fear continue 
(en francais)

Considering how well this strategy worked for them in the last campaign, I hope the current batch of Liberals continues to amaze us with their in-depth analysis.

By the way, speaking of a politicized judiciary, just how many was it of Cotler's friends and former associates made it to the bench?
Harper to Politicize Supreme Court Appointments

The Supreme Court is an independent judicial body and judges should be selected based on the over-riding principle of merit and not on the political leanings of the government of the day. As Liberals, we are highly skeptical of a public hearing process that could become politicized and impinge on the dignity of the Supreme Court.

Canada’s Constitution calls for a clear separation of powers between Parliament, the Executive Branch and the Judiciary. By politicizing the appointments process, the Conservative government is blurring this Constitutional line in order to clear a path for their right-wing social agenda.
