I’m always interested in the (usually unintentional) juxtaposition of news stories and the opportunities they present for comment.
While I am not in any way comparing what happened in the Prison at Lonsky with the Canadian penal system, I can’t help but think that Harper would benefit from touring a prison or two in his home country instead of just as a tourist abroad. Perhaps then the Harpercons might begin to understand the implications of their blinkered tough-on-crime agenda and the very real negative impact it has and will have on Canadian society as a whole.
C’mon Steve, visit a Canadian prison. Talk to the inmates. Learn something.
