Four lawyers who previously made donations to Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party have been appointed as judges.
In total, the two Ontario judges and two Quebec judges donated a total of $26,295 to the Liberals. One of them was a direct donor to Attorney General David Lametti. Another one of the judges held private fundraising events in her home for Liberal Party candidates.
The news come after the Liberals promised to stop using Liberalist, the party's internal donor database, to check judicial appointments for political donations.
The Liberals were also caught using Liberalist when making their "non-partisan" senate appointments. One of Trudeau's latest "non-partisan" senate appointees was a former two time liberal candidate.
Trudeau's partisan appointees to the courts had one of Lametti's staffers concern, with CBC reporting that he wrote to Lametti "to talk about what PMO requires us to do prior to a judicial appointment. It raises some concerns."
A National Post review from last December found 28% of those who received a judicial appointment or promotion under Trudeau had donated to the Liberal Party of Canada.
The four newly appointed donors include Montreal lawyer Daniel Urbas, who donated $9,351 to the Liberals, including $1,200 to Lametti's campaign in 2015.
Louis Charette, who is also from Montreal, donated $6,232 to the Liberals, while William Black from Toronto donating $4,423 to the Liberals. Jill Presser, who held fundraisers for Liberals in her home, donated $6,189.
