This paper argues against the election of judges in Canada using a review of literature on the subject. It compares the judicial selection process at provincial and federal courts, as well as with judicial elections in the United States of America. The conclusions from this paper are that judicial elections violate the principles of the Canadian justice system, and the current nominating process is superior to judicial elections.
