More on the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of Canada held a 3-day international symposium in Ottawa from September 27 to 29th, 2000, Canadians are not allowed to ask questions to Supreme Court Justices about their prejudices or anything else. According to the Canadian legal system, these justices are infallible when they make decisions.
If I had the opportunity, these are some of the questions I would like to ask these good people.

How could they justify spending $millions of taxpayers dollars on an international symposium?

How could they justify by their pompous attitude in allowing special-interest feminist interveners to be present in their courts, which could tend to stack a case against a defendant?

How could they justify turning Canada into a judicial dictatorship by canceling or changing 58 federal and provincial laws since the Charter was written?

Why did they allow homosexual marriages, change the definition of spouse, kiddie porn, Indians to fish out of season and Quebec to separate from Canada?

Do they feel good and secure about not being questioned about their hidden prejudices before they are allowed to take up their appointed positions for life?

Why are Canadian prime ministers afraid to use the notwithstanding clause despite many off-the-wall legal decisions?

Recent Canadian Supreme Court cases are classic cases of international socialist ideas or politically correct ideas clashing with Canadian jurisprudence. Canadian history and laws take a back seat to modern day international socialism. The politically correct Supreme Court pulls the strings and everyone falls into place. They act as though they have the divine rights of kings. Our elected representatives in Parliament watch this process with benign interest but Mr Chretien refuses to use the notwithstanding clause of the Charter to stop it. These decisions are all made behind closed doors. Canadians cannot question them. It is an obvious abuse of power because Canadians never protest. It is politically correct socialism pushed by a disciplined Liberal party, appointed Supreme Court judges, special-interest groups and a prime ministers who was not elected by all Canadians, introduced the notwithstanding clause in Parliament and has never used it. It is subservient Canadian people and MPs bowing before the divine right of kings.
Compare the Canadian system to the American system. The president of the U.S. cannot appoint unquestioned judges to the U.S. Supreme Court. In the American version of democracy, the Supreme Court is equal to Congress or the president not an unquestioned authority to change all laws as in Canada. Their Supreme Court appointees are questioned before they take up the appointment and then they have to pass a ratification vote. The American version ensures that they will have democracy not unbridled dictatorship or international socialist policies from a prime minister or a Supreme Court.
To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men. Abraham Lincoln
