CTV Poll says Liberals out of touch with Canadians

It's polls like this that prove, once again, that it's the Conservatives, and not the Liberals, who are in tune with the Canadian electorate.

Canadians want to know who the violent kids are amongst us. We're not talking about kids being kids, or who get into a school yard fight, or who are caught shoplifting. We're talking about violent kids, kids who have no moral regard for others in society. We're also talking about the unreformable offenders who just don't get it, or who refuse to change their ways.

These are the kinds of folks who do not deserve the "protection" of anonymity... whereas society should be able to protect themselves from these criminals.

This one's a vote getter, if you ask me. And to announce it on the same day the Liberals release their platform? Brilliant... announcing an controversial plan like this on the same day is going to cut the Liberals media time significantly. Plus, while Dion will get one or two days media play with the platform, Harper is going to get a week or mores worth of coverage with his announcement, as the conversations over naming convicted young offenders, sorry, young criminals, takes place around the watercoolers of the nation.

Dion moves, Harper counters... "CHECK"

    And out in front in the G & M with their headline:

    Tories: Want to extend life sentences to juveniles


    No spin here!

    And naturally, the Liberals are against it. Just as they were against raising the age of consent.

    Well, is it true or not?

    That's not the purpose of these changes TCH, the intent is to ensure that violent kids are identified and kept in prison long enough to attempt reform, and to protect society from them.

    Yes, I was against that and am against this.

    Prison should be about reform and rehabilitation, but it generally isn't from what I hear.

    I have friends who work in the juvenile 'rehabilitation and reform' system that we currently have. And its a joke.

    There's more concern for the young offenders 'sensibilities' than there is for actually reforming them. Instead of punishment, they coddle them.
