"Without naming names, Glube alluded to a tempest in Nova Scotia legal circles in 1998 when former justice minister Anne McLellan appointed Liberal fundraiser and party organizer Heather Robertson to the Nova Scotia Supreme Court.
The provincial judicial appointments advisory committee, which vets lawyers' qualifications for the justice minister, had initially determined it was "unable to recommend" Robertson for the bench, but reversed itself when asked to reconsider.
The move sparked the resignation of the committee's judicial member, along with a stiff letter of protest from the Canadian Bar Association admonishing McLellan that attempts "to manipulate the committee to achieve a desired political outcome must not be permitted."
