Look, there’s Justin Trudeau, heading a new federal government, a progressive government, full of energy, undoing wrongs, setting things right.
Hey Justin! Look over here! Yes, that’s right, over here; here in the place where rights claims are sent to be buried. I know you’re busy, but come on over, it won’t take a moment! Thank you.
Now look down here.
See this pile of partisan bias, patronage abuse, toxic conflicts of interest, bureaucratic self-interest, rule-of-law-denial, court neglect, shelved studies, political expediency, opaque processes, public deception … ?
Well, buried under that pile what do you see? Look closer; Yes, it is almost out of sight but, there it is: our – your – administrative justice system:
THE MOST UNJUST SYSTEM OF EVERYDAY JUSTICE IN THE MODERN WORLD.
Yes, it is an embarrassment, to say the least.
Yes, it could be fixed.
Yes, you could fix it.
Yes, it certainly should be high on your list.
