Canada Supreme Court Appointment

Kirk Makin reports for the Globe and Mail:

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has strengthened his imprint on the Supreme Court of Canada bench, naming a centrist judge from Quebec - Mr. Justice Richard Wagner - as his fifth appointment to the nine-judge bench since the Tories came to power in 2006.
*                                 *                                *
With his fifth Supreme Court appointment, Mr. Harper is well on the way to refashioning the very bench that will ultimately rule on the legitimacy of several controversial aspects of his criminal-law reform package.
