The following excerpt is from R. v. Lynxleg, 2002 MBCA 101 (CanLII):

25 For example, in the case of Brouillard v. The Queen, during the accused’s testimony, the judge asked many more questions than both counsel combined. In direct examination, the judge asked the accused twice as many questions as his own lawyer and his questions were in the nature of a cross-examination. In total, the accused was interrupted by the judge over 60 times. Both the accused and the witnesses were the object of sarcastic remarks by the judge.
