The Judiciary
Topic: The Judiciary is a powerful branch of government in Canada. While the function of the courts is to
administrate law, we know its powers are far more wide reaching. Given the court’s impact on the development,
evaluation, and administration of public law in Canada the question remains whether or not judges should be
elected for the purposes of ensuring democratic accountability. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of
subjecting judges to the electoral process. Remember to address the following issues: democratic legitimacy, the
appointment process, judicial independence and impartiality
