Was that really NDP leader Jack Layton trying to talk tough on crime today? Now that's funny!Layton and his gang of group huggers are desperate to jump on the bandwagon since crime became a dominant issue in the federal election campaign. Today he was touting his solutions to the problem and predictably, he demonstrated the next time he gets a good idea will be the first time.Among the foolishness uttered by Layton was this gem as reported by CTV. "He said his party would reduce access to crystal meth by stopping the illegitimate importation and sale of the drug. As well as increasing support for drug addiction programs."I don't know where to start with that pearl of wisdom. He is going to stop the importation and sale of crystal meth! And just how, pray tell, is he going to do that? What sort of magic wand has he got that thus far has failed the entire drug enforcement apparatus of the United States who, I should add, are a great deal more active in the war on illegal drugs than anything this country has been able to muster.Paul Martin says banning handguns (which are essentially already banned) is the answer to the gun crime spiralling out of control in this country while Layton has fanciful notions that he could actually stop the importation and sale of crystal meth. These are our leaders. Sad isn't it?Leo Knightleo@primetimecrime.com
The failed terrorist attack on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 shows just how bad our air security is and not a system that "worked" as Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano tried to spin on CNN's State of the Union show on Sunday morning. She back-tracked the next day by saying what she said had been taken out of context. Nonsense. It showed just how broken the system is and how luck coupled with an incompetent would-be terrorist saved all those lives. I fly a lot. An awful lot. Rare is the week that I am not on a plane somewhere. And frankly I am sick of having to play the game knowing that security at our airports in North America is little more than an illusion designed to make the travelling public feel like the authorities are doing something to protect us from those who would attack our very way of life. In the aftermath of 9/11, the TSA in the US and CATSA in Canada began a series of ridiculous procedures that served no actual security result. But they certainly inconvenience the travelling public. And, I should probably say that at least the TSA has the veneer of competence. Not so much for CATSA. I can't count how many times I have had my laptop randomly selected for and EDT (Explosive Detection Test) done with a swab or having been randomly selected for a physical search, a pat down head to toe after I had cleared the magnetometer screening.
