Through an examination of notable trials she has covered, Chrisitie Blatchford makes the case that Canada's judicial system is out of control and often inept. Judges, she says, are the new senators, unelected, unaccountable and overly entitled, while lawyers are often self-satisfied and contemptuous of anyone who is not a member of the club.
