And Now We're Charging Human Rights Workers With People Smuggling

I will now remain seated for the playing of Oh Canada. I feel shame at being a Canadian citizen that I have never before felt or even anticipated feeling.

A 65 year old human rights worker named Janet Hinshaw-Thomas has been arrested and charged with human smuggling for trying to help 12 Haitian asylum seekers, 7 children and 5 adults, enter Canada.

That's the kind of country we are now.
