Donating Judges is a series of articles examining the politicization of federal appointments to Canada’s courts and tribunals. It is the result of an eight-month data analysis investigation by the National Post and the Investigative Journalism Foundation (IJF), with reporters Christopher Nardi of the Post and the IJF’s Kate Schneider.

Canada’s judicial watchdog is probing if Ontario Superior Court judges made donations to a political party after their appointments, a practice that violates its ethical guidelines.
