Closed door appointment process; OK

Or, at least that's what Canada's Supreme Court Chief Justice Beverly McLachlin thinks. With the ink barely dry on Gomery II, it seems a bit odd for the Chief Justice to make such a statement.

Currently, the appointment process for supreme court justices is made by the prime minister with assistance from his/her justice minister. The CTF has advocated for a more open and transperant process. Specifically, enabling parliament to question/vet candidates for the top bench.

It is time to shed more light on the appointment process, not maintain the status quo.
