Stop using the taser and start shooting them. At least you can remove a bullet.

Another Taser death in Ontario this morning.

CBC reports here that an unidentified man died today after being tasered by the OPP this morning.
The incident happened mid-morning in Norfolk County, about 130 km southwest of Toronto.

Police said they were responding "to a report of an unwanted male person causing a disturbance," and said the man was "combative.
The man collapsed at the OPP station and was taken to the hospital where he died.

It is 150 people that didn't have to die.

This is utterly ridiculous.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
