The number ONE complaint of most Canadians is TWO fold:
- Crime is out of control and nothing is being done to curb it.
- Much of the blame rests squarely in the laps of judges; individuals who clearly seem unwilling to be tough on criminals. For example, apparently stealing 50, 100, or even 1,000 cars doesn't merit any kind of a lengthy sentence from most judges. But since judges are appointed, they are completely unaccountable to the people.
I have to believe that even the most devout advocates of a socialist democracy must have winced at Martin's ludicrous suggestion last night to remove the Nothwithstanding power from the politicians.
Unlike judges, politicians are ultimately held accountable, even if it is only every 4 to 5 years. And so to conclude this little Math exercise, number THREE will be Paul Martin's eventual realization, after he loses the upcoming election, of how completely out of touch he is with the Canadian public.
