How Appealing

Sunday, March 17, 2013

"The Supreme Court of Canada's silence is not golden": Monday's edition of The Toronto Globe and Mail will contain an editorial that begins, "It was an embrace unimaginable in Canada. The first Hispanic justice of the United States Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor, having written a bestselling memoir, embraced a seven-year-old girl who asked her what books she loved as a child, while 700 people looked on. It's unimaginable in Canada because judges on the Supreme Court do not write books. Not when they're on the court, and not when they retire. As in zero. None."
