Because it wasn't also written in French?

He could have cast all caution to the winds and worn a Bruins jersey along with the MAGA hat.

We're sore-ee. We're soary. WE'RE SORRY.
But not as sorry as America is.

Maybe he was trying to FINALLY bring sarcasm to Canada.

This judge is a dick, just like the guy we had who opened up a restaurant in downtown Hamilton that had confederate flags all over it thinking he'd make a fortune catering to all the oppressed white people who are sick and tired of all that oppressive political correctness. He went bankrupt in less than a month. Idiot got what he deserved.

He thought it would be a good "joke". The MAGA shiat did not find an appreciative audience here in Canada. And why should it? We just got rid of a government that was trying to bring in the same oppressive crap (to a lesser, more 'Canadian' extent) that our neighbours south are now dealing with.

The Judge exercised poor judgement. His suspension was the right thing to do.

Christ, in 2014 one Judge told a sexual assault victim in Alberta to "keep her legs together", and the same previous government wanted this guy on the Federal Court of Appeals. He finally resigned in March this year when the Judicial Council recommend his removal.

We don't fark around in dealing with Judges up here.

I actually googled him thinking it was the same guy that did this.  I couldn't remember where that girl lived that was told that.  I'm glad that guy resigned.  I don't keep up with the judges here.

Disgustingly inadequate 'punishment.' Courts are meant to be sacrosanct, the impartial arbiters of justice.

If I had to appear before this judge as a female sexual assault victim, or victim of racial harassment or violence, or in a fraud trial, or in a [ad nauseum], I would have precisely zero confidence in his impartiality or justice.

This fool has diminished the dignity of and trust in the impartiality and justice of every case he's ever heard, of every case ever heard by his friends and allies. He should have been removed from the bench and barred from sitting as a judge ever again.

Funny how bullies and assholes always fall back on the "it was a joke!" line when they get called out by someone with a little authority.

I was in court once with a baseball cap on.  Judge did not like that.  "Son, this isn't a tractor pull.  You need to take that hat off".
Then I did something stupid: I said "I wouldn't be here if it was a tractor pull".  He REEEEAAAALLLY didn't like that.  I almost got slapped with contempt.
I was only there because the State sent my car registration renewal to the the wrong address and I got ticketed for an unregistered vehicle.  Judge agreed and cancelled the ticket.

Huh.  My Aunt's FIL was a judge in Hamilton....  Sounds like something he would have done too.

I mean, it's a CANADIAN judge. How would you like it if you showed up in a US court and the judge was wearing a Make Russia Great Again hat?

It wasn't a trade. Chara wanted to go somewhere where he would get the C and get paid. Alfie was still king back then, and our small market couldn't afford to pay him enough to mitigate that. So we went with signing Redden again, which at the time didn't seem like such a bad thing, except cocaine is a hell of a drug (rumoured...and allegedly and all that) and Wade faded fast.

Is Hamilton like idiot central in Canada?

I thought that was Newfoundland.

MAGA hats are like Nazi swastika armbands. Anyone who wears either should be fired, and forever barred from having any gainful employment or receiving any sort of government assistance.

Have there been any studies done yet on Trump supporters and their "judgment." It seems you hear every day about Trumpers feeling empowered to harass random strangers on the street, coworkers, clients/customers, or just plain displaying "alt-judgment" in ways that get them fired or arrested.

Can confirm, am from Hamilton. You can see evidence of this Co2 poisoning on our city council who have spent the past decade arguing AGAINST a FREE light-rail system.

And I mean free, the Federal/Provincial government were like "Hey, you want some money?" and Hamilton proudly stood up and said "Not so fast!"

Farking idiots...
