Well I was glad to see Vic Toews pop up on the TV today after his recent physical and
But sadly my joy at seeing him back on his feet didn't last long eh? Because as soon as he opened his mouth nothing he said made any sense.
Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said Ottawa will save $120-million annually by closing the two institutions, arguing that the facilities are old and present a challenge for handling prisoners...“Simply put, we have better options.”
So let me get this straight. The Cons are closing two major prisons even though the system is overcrowded, and is about to get even worse when the Con's new crime bill starts sending even more Canadians to jail for "crimes" like smoking pot. And they are forced to double bunk prisoners, which will undoubtedly cause an explosion of violence and mass rape. But Toews claims THAT is why he's closing them?
Mr. Toews said the Tories are closing the prisons in part because the increase in jailed population expected from new harsher crime laws has not materialized. He said the rise in inmate numbers has even fallen short of his own department's estimates.
Even though the Bill just passed about a month ago?
OMG. The Con icon Benito Mussolini once said "The truth is that men are tired of liberty." But they must think we're SENILE.
Although I guess I shouldn't be surprised eh? I should have realized there was a reason they made their sneaky budget five-thousand pages. So they could hide stuff like this:
The budget contained a line that said: “The government has not built a single new prison since 2006 and has no intention of building any new prisons.”
And I also should have realized that while most Canadians will suffer from the brutalization of society, especially young inmates forced to share their cells and their bodies with older convicts. There probably will be winners.

Or as Vic Toews said today "better options."
Yup. They said they would change this country beyond recognition. But they didn't tell us it would be called AMERIKA.
Which reminds me...when Vic Toews says the Cons are willing to make changes to the internet snooping bill.
Don't believe him...
The Cons are turning us into a prison for business state.
Sign the petition. Spread the word. Stand up to those crazed totalitarians.
Before it's too late...
