All the world's a stage for members of Canada's beyond asinine juristocracy!

Dear CyberSmokeBlog:

http://www.cbc.ca/news/arts/shakespeare-in-court-shylock-s-appeal-heard-at-stratford-1.2470516?cmp=rss

Take a look at the cast here. Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin, former Supreme Court of Canada Justice Ian Binnie and Manitoba Associate Chief Justice Lori Douglas' lawyer Sheila Block.

I wonder if they're able to distinguish between reality and fantasy?

Dear ... cb:

Thank you for sharing this with with CyberSmokeBlog's readers. It simply serves to illustrate yet again just how out of touch senior levels of the Canadian juristocracy are with taxpayers. For example, the toothless, impotent, paper tiger Canadian Judicial Council driven Douglas Inquiry is an unmitigated disaster. Recall last September Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin announced there'd be an organizational review of the CJC's policies and procedures and she, as well as, her colleagues are engaging in this kind of nonsense.

Do you really think the average Canadian struggling from paycheque to paycheque to make ends meet - the same ones paying for the Douglas Inquiry fiasco - really gives a .... about Shylock's appeal? If they wish to debate Shakespeare why not Dick the Butcher's line, "The first thing we do lets kill all the lawyers" from Henry VI. Then there's Mr. Bumble in Charles Dickens Oliver Twist who upon being told he was responsible for all his wife's debts famously said, "The law is an ass."

The great unwashed masses should be thankful at least they didn't dress up to try to do Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. It would have made the Douglas Inquiry look like a piker, been exceedingly amusing and cost taxpayers a lot less.

These individuals are fiddling while Rome burns simultaneously arranging deckchairs on the Titanic. They really have lost touch with reality ..... Oh Vey!

Postscript



If these legal heavyweights are so smart, for an encore why don't they discard their clown gowns and don black judicial tights so they can regale taxpayers with their rendition of the Bolshoi Ballet's Swan Lake put to the music of Tchaikovsky. Better yet, what a way to open the Douglas Inquiry II's second season. Then again upon second sober thought would you really want to see Beverley McLachlin, Sheila Block and Ian Binnie prancing around pandering before the cameras in black leotards or Lululemon yoga pants? Imagine what that would do to their "Rubenesqueness!"
