Harper government 'proceeding in wrong direction' on crime bill: NL Justice Minister

“Most groups, most experts and most witnesses who have given presentations on this bill would advocate that the federal government is proceeding in the wrong direction, and that this procedure has been tried in other areas before and has proven to be a failure. Incarcerating more people is not the answer.”
- Newfoundland and Labrador Justice Minister Felix Collins, as quoted today (Nov. 3) in the St. John’s Telegram, about the Harper government’s omnibus crime bill, Bill C-10. NL joins Quebec and Ontario in raising objections about the crime bill.
