As all the world (nearby) likely knows by now, Mr. Justice Rothstein will attend at a meeting of an ad hoc committee made up of members of Parliament in order to answer their questions concerning… exactly what, we're not yet sure. This will happen on Monday afternoon, February 27.
Here's the deal: What question would you like the committee to pose to its guest?
Slawyers, write in over the weekend — via comments — with that all-important question, and we'll do what we can on Monday morning to make them available to, well, all the world. Remember, only one question.
A question to be going on with…
Q. Mr. Justice, Prime Minister Harper has said that a judge should "apply the law rather than make it" and should do that "in a way that uses common sense and discretion, without being inventive"; describe, please, how it is possible to resolve the disputes that come to the Supreme Court without invention or making law.
We know you can do better.
