RCMP Should Provide Security For May
The RCMP provide teams of trained plainclothes Mounties to protect Mr. Harper, Liberal Leader Stephane Dion, Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe and NDP Leader Jack Layton but haven’t offered Ms. May the same thing."
Halifax Chronicle Herald
In spite of my little dust up with John Bennett of the Greens, I think that the time has come to say Ms. May should be given a minimum of security during the remainder of this campaign.
An incident with a gun carrying man outside of Jack Layton's event the other day brings into focus the fact that these leaders put their lives on the line for what they believe. There are a lot of kooks and crazies running around out there and far too many handguns.
Clearly, an evaluation needs to be done of current security measures for national party leaders. Until that is done by someone, I think that we should be cautious.
So ... note to the RCMP ..... consider increasing security for Elizabeth May for the remainder of this election campaign.
