Giant jails are not a solution



This new crime bill, C-10 (referred to by one commentator as the “jail solves everything” bill), does not IMHO move Canada toward being a safer, more civil society. Indeed — thanks to the wisdom of my fellow Canadians who voted Harper & Co. to a majority — we seem to be heading pell mell down the same road that has made the U.S. such an exemplar of sanity and civility. I have small faith that a petition will do much good, but i do feel it’s important to push back against an ideological, anti-scientific, secretive regime.

Petition against C-10 here: I was signer number 18-thousand-and-something.
