Even the more right leaning National Post is questioning the wisdom of the Harper Government’s omnibus crime bill, C-10, with a pair of editorials blasting the minimum sentence provisions, and their lack of study or insight into the matter. The Post’s Chris Selley blasted the minimum sentences as unjust. Jonathan Kay says the bill lacks any intellectual backing, and is purely ideological propaganda.
Both good reads, but unfortunately, as Selley realistically points out, “nothing any journalist says is likely to make any difference.”
People asked how much trouble can a Conservative majority really create? I think we’re going to find out.
