Conservative Senator Wants To Encourage Suicide As Part Of Canada's Justice System - UPDATED
"A tough-on-crime Conservative senator who said murderers should be provided with the tools to kill themselves in jail sparked a furor during Question Period on Wednesday.
“Each assassin should have the right to a rope in his cell to make a decision about his or her life,” senator Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu told reporters ahead of a meeting of the Conservative caucus on Wednesday.
The NDP raised the furor during Question Period, pointing out that encouraging suicide is an illegal act in Canada.
“The death penalty debate in Canada has been closed for decades. Why are the Conservatives reopening the old debate?” Interim NDP Leader Nycole Turmel said."

'... oops .. sorry.' says Conservative Senator - (after quick, sharp ass-kick from the PMO)..
"You stuff the Senate full of hacks and flaks and Tory idiots and you're going to get some stupid comments. Whoever put him there should apologize on his behalf if he's too stupid to apologize himself."
