Con policy and death row

Remember this and this? Well, one of those uppity Canadians on death row has gone and found himself some of them lawyer types.
CBC News

An Alberta man on death row in Montana is taking the Canadian government to court over its decision not to intervene in his case.

Lawyers representing Ronald Allen Smith on Tuesday submitted an application to the Federal Court of Canada for a judicial review of the government's decision.

Smith's lawyers argue that Day's position is a tacit approval of Smith's execution. Such approval violates Smith's constitutional rights as a Canadian and his rights under international law, his lawyers say.

Keep your eye on this.
