Lawyers Weekly makes an interesting observation - One third of federal judges now appointed by Harper government:
The Conservatives will have appointed one-third of the country’s federal judges by the time they celebrate their fourth anniversary in office this month.
...Prime Minister Stephen Harper has already had a major impact on the judiciary’s top echelons, despite leading a minority government. He has appointed two Supreme Court of Canada judges, as well as at least eight provincial chief, or associate chief, justices.
