Harper has lost two gambits to undermine Canada's legal system in two days.
First, an attempt to make prison sentences harsher by retroactively killing an early parole program was knocked down yesterday.
Then, this morning, the Supreme Court swatted down Harper's appointment of Marc Nadon to the Supreme Court. Even after attempting to change the rules to make Nadon "eligible" by amending the Supreme Court appointment rules in one of their infamous "Omnibus Bills".
These two occasions tell us a lot. In nearly a decade in power, Harper and his band of goons still do not understand the framework of laws in this country. One could argue that they do not care, and be at least partially correct. Harper's disdain for the law and due process are well known.
