Stop the Appointment of Partisan Judges

TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:

WHEREAS appointing tribunals and courts with partisan judges is a violation of our democratic rights to an independent and impartial judiciary;

WHEREAS we are seeing the impact with the Land Appeal Tribunal where 97% of decisions are against community members and municipalities and in favour of developers;

WHEREAS the Premier has indicated he wants to appoint Conservative judges;

WHEREAS the Attorney General was caught interviewing Chief Justice candidates; and

WHEREAS the government just appointed a prior Vice President of the Ontario PC party as an Ontario Court of Justice judge;

THEREFORE WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to protect our charter right to an independent and impartial judiciary and to stop the appointment of partisan judges.
