7 Responses to PC Deputy Campaign Director Contradicts Leader

    Let is go, John. Bottom line is, unlike you Liberals, we do agree, as do most Ontarians, that criminals should not get a free ride. I trust the legislature to ensure whatever work program is implemented will be safe for residents, especially children. Stop making things up! 🙂

    Soooooooooooo Soooooooo true, Andrew! As is the case in much of the local Liberal hyperbole, this is pure crappola. Go back and read my prior response to this issue (on a similar thread here). That’s how the whole thing will work….Not ‘should’ work…but WILL work!

    John, so what if Hudak’s Deputy Campaign Director may not know exactly how the correctional system works (re:forms of conditional release). YOU are the Local Campaign Manager (not just the Deputy)and you surely don’t know.

    As a former (full-time) VC of the Ontario Parole and EARNED release board, I can tell you that…..for sure. Now stop this nonsense and, frankly, outright lies about ‘unchained killers and sex offenders in parks next to our kids..’. You are betraying yourself and your party by making such outrageous claims.

    As for arming correctional facility guards..Have you completely ‘lost it’. Guards are not armed because,what if an inmate ‘over-took’ them and retrieved the weapon. Think of the ramifications! NO government is planning to arm prison guards..nor should they!

    Don’t write or speak of that which you know not! Unfortunately, even your candidate must not know the whys and wherefores of Ontario Correctional early releases and work programs; or she would not allow you to write that which is so easily disputed and roven wrong.

    P.S. last 2 words s/b ‘proven wrong’…

    As someone who has worked in the Provincial Jail system , Margaret is correct.The guards are not armed,there are weapons of all sorts available in each armoury should a need arise and the type used is proportionate to the event. There is a special Provincial Corrections Unit that is specially trained and deployed in severe instances , much like a combination SWAT\RIOT squad, that negotiates, keeps the situation contained and if necessary uses force to diffuse a violent occurence. Federal Prisons have armed guards on the Towers, and at certain check points within the facility.Any guards best weapon is the one between his ears.
    My sticking point with the Chain-Gang idea is two fold, ROI(return on investment) because it will require more manpower to supervise and implement , so what are the savings? And second from a Human Rights \ Constitution point what if any ramifications are there?

    Should have said “between His or HER ears”

    I have never read so much horse pucky in my life. My mother a FOREIGN immigrant, Red Cross Nurse during the London Blitz, district midwife, worked more than 20 years Grandview and Kingston’s womans prison. My wife recipient of the Exemplary Service Medal, officer in the Queen Alexanders Nursing Corp (combat nurse) 30 years corrections and my friends ,most C/O’s. So no one in the USA grabbed a rifle and escaped from chain gangs. The other scribe says as he worked in corrections and invoked the US swat/riot ought to know it is ICET team here. Take Guelph and other places the inmates worked at the Beef Centre, pig farms, made clothes, worked farms in general, car repairs, furniture made,cut grass in cemetaries, and then poof all closed. Mega waste jails built, phsychiatric hospitals closed schizophrenics on the street no meds. List is endless so stick to what you know. As for me a drug dog handler way back searching cells also many moons as a bodyguard to night nurses in physych hospitals and battered women homes went they made rounds from house to house in the dark. Go figure something new is happening! Bollocks.
