Jack Layton gets tough on crime. Yes, Jack wants to crack down on crime, announcing a new multimillion-dollar plan Saturday to crack down on gangs and gun violence.
Does any Canadian take Jack seriously when he speaks about cracking down on crime? How many months in office would it take, do you think, before that promise would be ditched.
What's the point of having more police officers on the streets if we had a party in power with the NDP's past track record? And Jack's new group's no better. Read on.
The Ottawa Citizen reports that Jack's announcement:
"The announcement follows the resignation of a second NDP candidate in Vancouver over embarrassing video images of his marijuana use.
The two candidates were associated with a B.C. Marijuana party activist, Marc Emery, featured with Layton in videos posted on POT TV and youtube.com.
In a 15-minute video interview with Emery from 2003, Layton makes an appeal to POT TV viewers to "join the party" and support the NDP because he believes people should be allowed to smoke marijuana in the comfort of their own homes or in cafes without being considered criminals."
Bizarre isn't it?
