Well, Roy McMurtry was a good judge after a long career in politics -- so why not Vic Toews? He's a hard nose in politics but that's not necessarily of reflection on what type of judge he would be...
Public Safety Minister Vic Toews is destined for a new job on Manitoba's highest court, sources say.
There are currently nine judges on the Manitoba Court of Appeal -- one works part time -- but one is due to retire shortly when he hits the compulsory retirement age of 75.
There is also one opening on the Court of Queen's Bench that needs filling.
Sources say Toews is in line for the Court of Appeal opening, but it's an appointment that does not have to be made immediately.
