The thing is, Ujjal...

I'm pretty sure Casey and Finnegan had a prior commitment...

-- OTTAWA -- Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day has favoured former police and corrections officers for new appointments to the National Parole Board since the Harper government took office in 2006, government records show.

Of the 36 new members Mr. Day has named to the board since he became minister that year, 23 are retired police officers or former federal and provincial corrections staff.
Yeah... I'm shocked.

Turns out the Conservative Party isn't gonna blindly meander down the "flood the cities with social workers" garden path espoused by the fiberals.
Mr. Day has also re-appointed a further four retired police officers and four former corrections administrators who were named to the parole board by Ms. McLellan and previous Liberal ministers.
Just another reason why, folks.

Excellent idea. Cops and Corrections Officers understand criminals, everyone will be safer. Stockwell is great.

if ujjal and steffi have such a problem with this... why do they continue to prop up the conservatives?

They continue to prop up the conservatives because they're spineless, rude and clueless abut what Canadians truly want. I stress the spineless part the most.

And this is how the Liberal Party of Canada expects to win over the electorate in the next election.

Opposing common sense has always done so well at the polls.

"anon says... Opposing common sense has always done so well at the polls."

it seems to play pretty well in a place like toronto... where you can have a million person week long celebration of penis.

out here in the sticks... not so much.

Well I guess there are two choices of people who understand criminals to appoint to parole boards. Ex-police and corrections workers or criminals themselves.

I suppose the MSM is suggesting we should be appointing criminals to the parole board?
