So the 78 year old judge who was forced to resign as Ontario's integrity commissioner has been replaced by an 88 year old judge, who will be called the acting integrity commissioner (presumably until they find a 98 year old judge with enough integrity to do the job on a permanent basis). They must have determined that the youngster wasn't old enough to be sufficiently filled with integrity, but the new guy got himself in some difficulty some years ago when he had to resign from an inquiry concerning Ontario's exploitation of the Dionne quints due to his apparent bias expressed before the inquiry started. Can it be that hard to find an old Ontario judge to whitewash the actions of the government?
