First of all, as Iggy says in today's Post, the courts may have something to say about it:
Liberal leadership candidate Michael Ignatieff questioned whether the reforms would withstand a challenge under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
"We're a country based on the presumption of innocence. I've yet to be convinced that this measure, which I think might do damage to the Charter principles of presumption of innocence, is good public policy," Mr. Ignatieff said in an interview with Global Television's Focus Ontario that will air this weekend.
Thank you again, Pierre Trudeau...
And, as the Sun editorial states, it's just a baby step in a whole long list of things that need to be done to stop pandering to criminals in this country. The Sun points out the need for a Conservative majority to be able to accomplish this goal. No wonder the Liberal cabal gave inmates the right to vote!
