Tories appointed Hells Angels Lawyer to Quebec Supreme Court
This kind of story leaves you shaking your head wondering if there is any semblance of honesty or credibility left in the political system. In 2006 the Tories appointed a former lawyer for the Hells Angels to the Quebec Supreme Court. If that doesn't spell WTF, I don't know what does. It's like Braveheart being betrayed by the Bruce. We are forced to bow our head in shame.
There is nothing to argue about. The lawyer was the president of the Conservative party. He also represented the Hells Angels in a trade mark dispute. Not only is that a conflict of interest, it puts the Conservatives suspect for arguing it isn't. At lease the Quebec Chief Justice had the brains to pull him off a Hells Angels case when the Tories didn't.
