Should Judges and justices be elected or appointed?
The judicial system in Canada and Alberta is highly corrupted and I am curious to hear others views on whether Judges and Justice should continue to be appointed of finally be elected.
There are also endless justices and judges who are highly political and affiliated to specific parties, making our justice system not just corrupted but political and conflicted. Further to that, those who wish to judge others while being publicly funded to do so, should be ready and able to be judged by the public prior to judging members of society. It is obvious that our judges and justices not only avoid any judgement or criticism but also manage to be appointed based on favouritism.
I would like to hear everyone’s views. Please add good and bad experiences with judges and justices within “our” free, democratic, just and transparent system, if you have any.
