So a Canadian judge has decided to help the UK and America celebrate Women's History Month.

I read your thread title as critical of Canada. However the report to which you link concerns the guy being effectively forced to resign before he was fired as a result of a condemnatory judicial review, which suggests that the Canadians done good, so to speak. And he isn't Canadian either, and blames his upbringing(!).

I was already familiar with the story, and he's obviously a complete knob, but am I misinterpreting the title?

Yes and no. Obviously not all of Canada is reflected by this bellend. But it is a sign that the Canadian justice system needs work. I suppose the title reflects my impression that Canada is a little further down the road than the UK or US and this incident is a challenge to that.
But the title is more to grab attention than to accurately reflect the content.

I read somewhere a suggestion that he move to the U.S. Trump would probably appoint him to the Supreme Court.

The report I heard is that the gov't was going to remove him from the court and fire him as a judge, but they followed the wrong procedure and he resigned before they could do it. It was a horrible thing this man put the woman through, compounding the misogyny of the sexual assault.

There is a second judge in Halifax NS who has gone down a slightly different but similar path. This time about passed out people consenting. The CBC Radio also had it that another woman had come forward about the same cab driver, and the police hadn't proceeded, i.e., not passed the file to the Crown prosecutor.

There is a weeding required, unfortunately it is one weed at a time, and digging out their disgusting roots. We need to be able to spray anti-humanity pesticides. This is misogyny, but we are all in this together and it is anti-human as well as anti-women.

He resigned when the disciplinary body recommended he be removed but before Parliament actually voted to remove him. This is what has happened in the past in such cases (I won't say what "usually" happens because the whole thing happens so rarely that there isn't really a "usually" to speak of).

The regrettable incident in Halifax was referred to in the unlikely setting of a hospital where I was recently undergoing a diagnostic procedure. The specialist had me sign a form indicating that he had told me that I would be under anaesthetic and was deemed to be legally drunk in Ontario, so that I could not drive a car or pilot an aeroplane and, additionally, that I could not sign a contract or consent to sexual activity, all for 24 hours. "Except in Halifax," said the woman anaesthetist. "I'm not travelling," I replied, and she congratulated me.

"Where's your pole to slide down on?"

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that most people have probably heard raunchier jokes in their workplace, as often as not made by women.

Still, given that the male MP in question serves with The Most Feminist Government Ever, probably not the most advisable comment to be making.
