Re: U.S. murderer escapes death penalty by fleeing to Canada

I don't know why you are all getting in a knot over this. As a matter of principle, Canada does not believe in capital punishment. Therefore, they will not extradite if there is a possibility that the person will face execution. All it takes is an assurance from the US officials that they will not s...

Re: Tough on refugees: Are non-Canadians getting a fair shak

Question: Do hospitals have to pay for foreign women to deliver here because their babies are Canadian? Also, I wonder how many of us are also American citizens because our mothers braved getting stuck in traffic on the bridge just so they could give birth in the USA and thereby give their children...

Re: Tough on refugees: Are non-Canadians getting a fair shak

Jason Kenny is awesome.... It is a perennial issue, and previous immigration ministers, Liberal and Tory, have made similar proposals for similar reasons, with little in the way of results. Mr. Kenney said he hears frequent complaints about it, including from hospitals that get stuck paying the cos...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

You must either be joking or horribly self-absorbed. Anyone who seeks out employment with CBSA and affirms that they are willing, able, and voluntarily able to work anywhere in Canada can hardly claim they've been discriminated against. I think that was a subtle reference to the former Ontario Huma...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

I just want to know where I'll be posted (if I'm hired..) so I can start planning my life accordingly. I don't care if I have to wait 5 years before getting sent there, I just want to know. I know that I should live my life as if I hadn't applied, which is what I'm doing now, but there are some thi...

Re: Air vs nitrogen in tires: what colour are your valve cap

I always thought the main reason for using nitrogen in tires is because it is less sensitive to changes in temperature... IE, when it gets cold, the "air" in your tires condenses so your PSI reduces. When it gets warm out, "air" expands and increases your PSI. This actually make...

Re: America's toughest sheriff mocks Canada's coddl

I think the entire system needs a change. We live in a country where someone who has sex with a dog gets ten years in jail, while someone who has sex with a child. Or where I could intentionally run over and kill somebody with my car, and get less time than someone who robs banks. The justice syste...

Re: America's toughest sheriff mocks Canada's coddl

I'm sure as a lawyer you would rather we hand out flowers, chocolate, and free crying sessions to all the poor inmates who are "profiled" by us mean oppressive jack-booted law enforcement officers. Read up on the guy. Don't take my word for it - as Jim street points out I've never met the...

Re: America's toughest sheriff mocks Canada's coddl

One of the Sun Media "columnists" has been all over the latest report from CSC on costs of keeping inmates. And now he has brought Joe Arpaio into it: m Do I shake my head at work sometimes? Most certainly. But I don't think a hardcore approach like Sherrif Joe would work here. Or would i...

Re: 2011 Ford Police Interceptor On The Way

Yeah well as much I we'd like the other available vehicles, our two choices are Impala police package or Charger police package. And it will generally be used for two officers, plus whoever we manage to stumble into to put into the back. And ATR, I laughed hard at the mention of rifle racks or MDT'...

Re: Drummon report....discuss

I glanced quickly at the Justice section of the report. Nothing new in what has always been discussed then dismissed. Outsourcing low risk escorts, noncore police duties, etc... Some of the things are already being done like cell monitoring by the Commissionaires, and finger printing. It was good t...
