A four pack of info for you on your Liberal government’s answer to psycho killers:
First, a letter (from a prolific and oft-quoted Mr. Knight)
I WISH the people of Ontario, and especially Toronto, would get off Martin Ferrier’s back ( “Psycho set free,” July 6).
He’s served his time, and despite being ruled a violent incurable psychopath, our justice system says he is entitled to walk down the same streets as our children whenever he wants.
You want it different? Too bad. You had your chance during the election when you could have voted for Stephen Harper, a tough-on-crime politician. Instead, you saw Harper as more dangerous than Ferrier.
So suck it up, and when Mr. Ferrier commits his next violent assault, as we all know he will, then, and only then, will we have the opportunity to finally declare him a dangerous offender and lock him up for good.
To whoever the future victims of Mr. Ferrier are (think of it as a Liberal roulette wheel for victims of crime), remember that the federal Liberals have appreciated the support they received in this election. Just as they no doubt appreciated the votes of criminals like Martin Ferrier himself.
(Ouch—sharp words, but someone had to say ‘em)
Finally, Wente weighs in, placing the blame squarely on the do-nothing Liberals.
But the worst problem, as you may already have suspected, is the Liberal government in Ottawa. Back in the dim and distant past, the federal Tory government did draft a sexual-predator bill. When the Liberals were elected, they killed it because, they said, it violated individual Charter rights.
LIB with a justice outrage of the day on this case.
