I do remember years ago when a young Ontario man, John Moore, was found guilty of murder simply because earlier he had been in the company of two individuals who did actually murder someone.
Under the law of the day, he should have known what might happen. He had been found guilty under the provision of an old law that has since been ruled unconstitutional. After serving a decade in prison, he is now out on parole, part of which means that he cannot even use public transit in Sault Ste. Marie when he goes to visit his mother. What the use of public transit has to do with parole, I cannot fathom.
Apparently over the years, Mr. Moore has appealed to every justice minister since Kim Campbell.
Forgetting the morons who originally crafted and passed that legislation, it seems that in our own time the country is still run by folks who, if I may borrow the words of that humourous U.S. documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, can only be referred to as Stupid White Men.
