The Honourable Brian W. Abrams, a partner at Templeman Menninga LLP in Kingston, is appointed a Judge of the Superior Court of Justice of Ontario, Family Division (Kingston) to replace Mr. Justice G.A. Campbell, who elected to become a supernumerary judge as of August 1, 2010.Was this a payoff to get him out of the race? Abrams was floundering, taking a lot of hits in the local media for refusing to get involved in the Prison Farm issue. But he's ex RCMP and was a lawyer for the cops, so will never be on the side of the people.
