i agreed but Really, don’t mess with it. It was an excellent film and an equally excellent soundtrack by Vangelis. If you must do something with the genre, do something from Walter Jon Williams (Hardwired, Voice of the Whirlwind), or Count Zero, or other such Cyberpunk stories that later became the inspiration to Johnny Mnemonic and The Matrix. And get Vangelis to do the soundtrack.

Why do you think that? Nothing earth shattering has happened in the last 8 years where they were appointed and replaced, in a minority. Nothing earth shattering happened when the liberals were in charge for over a decade. Judge selection in Canada is generally impartial based on the merits of the judge at the federal level, has and continues to be. Provincial politics, not so much, but it's by far better than elected judges. Of course a judge breaching the judicial oath system is actually a fairly serious offence here. Meaning a judge can end up going off to prison in the worst case. The basic rule of judges is: You can hold no political affiliation, nor own businesses or enterprise in Canada. They must act as agents of the people.
