Harper has spoken. No need for a trial now.

BigCityLib Strikes Back makes the single best point regarding Stephen Harper's speech to the Indo-Canadian Chamber of Commerce: Nobody has been to trial yet.

Harper was loose and fast with the lip during his speech in which he so much as stated that, without the benefit of a trial, the people arrested for allegedly plotting terrorist activities are evil.

Two points.

1. If, after constitutionally guaranteed due process, these 17 individuals are found guilty of the offenses for which they've been charged, then the leader of government can suggest they represent hatred.

2. What ever happened to politicians refusing to comment on cases which were before the courts?

Or is due process too much of an inconvenience for a smug little prick like Harper?
