Conservative propaganda meme breaches its own legislation


According to the government, the measure is needed “to keep Canadian families and their communities safe” from “heinous” (that word again: has it ever been used except in front of “crimes” or “criminals”?) criminals, those “whose actions mean we cannot risk permitting them on the streets.” The suggestion is that Canada’s streets are menaced by a wave of elderly jailbirds, released on parole after a scant 25 years in the slammer. This is — does it even need saying? — nonsense.  –Andrew Coyne, The National Post, March 4, 2015(NDPC)
