Are they just deliberately batting foul balls to have something to shout about judicial activism to their mouth breathing base over?
The Conservative government’s tough-on-crime agenda has suffered another major blow at the Supreme Court of Canada. The court blocked the government’s attempt to stop judges from routinely giving extra credit to offenders for time served in jail before sentencing.The unanimous ruling is even written by one of Harper's own appointees! They were repeatedly warned this would happen and deliberately pissed away MILLIONS of taxpayer dollars to pass a law that anyone with even a child's understanding of the charter and existing sentencing law could and did tell them would be overturned by the courts. This is incompetence and wastefulness on a truly breathtaking scale.
The 7-0 ruling continues the losing streak of the Harper government in major cases at the Supreme Court over the past month.
Frankly it disqualifies them for governance.
