Judge Not

The Chief Justice of Quebec says that separatists shouldn't be allowed to serve as judges:

Judges have a duty to enforce the Canadian Constitution, which states that Quebec is a part of Canada," Judge Michel Robert said in an interview yesterday. "It seems to me that you can't uphold the Canadian Constitution if at the same time you promote Quebec separation."


One must prove oneself worthy of appointment to the bench through the same selfless public service exemplified by such noted jurists as Madam Justice Claudette Tessier-Couture.

Mr. Justice Robert speaks, of course, with the moral authority of one who has served as the president of the Liberal Party of Canada who helped Jean Chretien force out John Turner for the good of the common weal.
