Politicians playing politics with Justice
With Emilie on campaign trial award winning blogger and friend of the podcast Anne-Marie McElroy jumps into the void. We chat about the ill-informed political push to eliminate the preliminary hearing to speed up trials. Then Emilie stops by to confront her temporary replacement. Then we move on to more politics and the justice system - this time the Conservatives be all Conservative and misrepresent some facts about the justice system. The cases is graphic and tragic - Vincent Li beheaded a man on a bus. He was found to be not criminally responsible due to his mental health issues and 10 years later was found to not pose a risk to the public. But the Conservative omitted those details from their talking points. The Liberals and Justin Trudeau also neglect to talk about important mental health issues - so we did. Finally we discuss collect call rates in our jails - in a word they are the most price gougiest rates that ever gouged a price.
