Justin Trudeau slams Harper after Supreme Court ruling

Justin Trudeau FEDERAL Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau slammed Prime Minister Stephen Harper after the Supreme Court of Canada struck down his judicial appointment, Marc Nadon.

Trudeau said: “A Prime Minister has a responsibility to get the big things right. Supreme Court appointments are one of the most fundamental and important responsibilities of a Prime Minister, and this appointment and its rejection raise serious questions about Mr. Harper’s judgment.

“This is a new, precedent-setting decision, and not one that our country should ever have to face.

“It is imperative that the Prime Minister is seized with addressing the continued vacancy on our country’s highest court.”
