Liberal Party AWOL On Harper's G20 Civil Rights Abuses
The silence coming from Ignatieff's Liberals in the wake of the G20 civil rights abuses is deafening! But when you listen to Iggy and his Liberal policy on 'detention' and 'assassination', we shouldn't be surprised!
"In a letter to Vic Toews dated June 29th Mark Holland, the Liberal public safety critic, raises a series of concerns regarding G20 security – not one of which mentions violations of civil liberties.
To wit: “As Canadians now know, Prime Minister Harper made the decision to hold the G20 in downtown Toronto – a decision that led to exorbitant costs and a nearly impossible security situation for police.”
The largest mass arrest of Canadians in history and the Grits primary concern is that the cops were overwhelmed. It would be as if Martin Luther King in his letters from the Birmingham jail wrote to Police Chief “Bull” Connor complaining about the stress he was putting on his department’s German shepherds.
At a wintry moment in the history of Canadian civil rights, the Liberal Party is AWOL.
