Quebec to Harper: Take Your Crime Bill...
...and shove it.
The debate isn't over yet for the Harper’s government’s criminal justice legislation – at least not in Quebec.
The provincial government announced Tuesday that it would do everything in its power to limit the clout of the legislation that passed a day earlier.
And why wouldn't they? When this fascist bill makes absolutely no sense.
Similar legislation has failed in both Britain and the United States:
Republican governors and state legislators in such states of Texas, South Carolina, and Ohio are repealing mandatory minimum sentences, increasing opportunities for effective community supervision, and funding drug treatment because they know it will improve public safety and reduce taxpayer costs. If passed, C-10 will take Canadian justice policies 180 degrees in the wrong direction, and Canadian citizens will bear the costs.
And will only turn us into a prison state.
But of course when it comes to the fascist Cons, there is always method to the madness.
For in addition to satiating its rabid bloodthirsty base, and Harper's sick desire to inflict pain on others, the bill has another sinister purpose.
And that is to inflict economic pain on the provinces so they are forced to cut social services, and further privatize medicare. Which as I have pointed out so many times before is the main reason Harper entered politics. Supported by the National Citizens Coalition which was FOUNDED to kill our health care system.
Yup. The federal Parliament can do nothing to stop those degenerate Cons, but the provinces still can throw a spoke in the wheels of the Death Machine. So let the mutiny begin.
And oh yeah, I almost forgot. My beautiful Quebec, the last bastion of Canadian values.
Leading the way for others to follow.
Until the Day of Justice...
