Harper announces new Supreme Court nominee

Well there's nothing like a burgeoning food safety crisis to prompt some Prime Ministerial newsmaking. Meet the new nominee: "Mr. Justice Richard Wagner." Just over one year on the Quebec Court of Appeal but about 8 in total on the bench.

One more quick observation here. Noted in Justice Wagner's background:
He was also an executive member of the Construction Law Section of the Canadian Bar Association, Quebec Division which he presided during the year 2003-2004.
You never know when that kind of background might come in handy these days...
