LAST WORD: Maybe the cupboard IS bare...
...after eco-Dalton handed a billion dollars to the windmill people.
What exactly are we talking about here?
The legislation would impose mandatory minimum sentences for some drug crimes and toughen punishments for violent young offenders, among other changes.And some folks have a problem with that?
So what is the split here?
Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia have all said they are in favour of the bill, while Ontario and Quebec have joined forces to fight it.Wow... the Ontario Liberals are against tougher sentencing for violent offenders. No wonder schoolyard shootings are constantly in the news.
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty said Wednesday. “If there are accompanying costs, we’re not prepared to accept those in Ontario.”Apparently justice does have a price... for Dalton & the Liberals.
If only he was as circumspect about those other pesky little budget items...
