Honest Bev

The chief justice of Canada's Supreme Court is at it again, saying things with no basis in reality.

On the topic of the current process by which judges are appointed, she says

"I respect that, and that is the Constitution."

I'm just pleased to see her making the distinction between what she upholds and what the constitution does, especially since recently admitting that she's just making it up as she goes.

So, considering recent rulings, if wants us to have confidence in the judiciary, she needs to keep up this streak of fantastic honesty.

It's time for courts to release decisions that read like this:

"We decline to justify ourselves, or pretend our decision has any basis in fact, need, reality, precedent, the constitution, or anything else. We are the Court. We have spoken. That is all."
