Will PEI Premier and Attorney General Wade MacLaughlan protect the rIghts of a citizen Doyle to a trial before an independent judiciary?
Doyle alleges the judges acted improperly by sitting on cases where they had a conflict of interest and he fears they are set to railroad him again because they are protecting their families and law partners.

According to his online biography Premier Wade is a smart guy who knows a lot of law.
"Prior to entering provincial politics, Wade served as the University of Prince Edward Island President from 1999 to 2011. During that time, UPEI rose in stature regionally and nationally, made dramatic strides in research and development, and placed enhanced emphasis on community engagement.
Previously, he was Dean of Law at the University of New Brunswick and a professor of law at Dalhousie University."
There is legal precedent for such an inquiry because in 2003 Ontario Attorney General Michael Bryant filed a complaint against Ontario Justice Paul Cosgrove, calling him unfit to be a judge, and accusing him of sullying reputations and of having "vilified the state".
Doyle thinks that the judges have been rigging cases against him in order to protect family members and law partners by doing so they have "vilified the state" by bringing the administration of justice into disrepute.
