Re: "Anti-Crime Plan Revealed by Layton."

He recommends ramping up recruitment of RCMP officers to fill those 
staffing shortages. Layton lost my vote. He didn't even mention one 
of the main root causes of crime: The war on drugs. And we would need 
fewer officers, not more, if we ended that war.

If this party -- or any party -- had the guts to actually come out 
and say that the war on certain drugs is causing more problems than 
it is solving, and that all drugs should be regulated like alcohol, 
then I would be impressed.

But what do we get? A little from column A to keep the lefty base 
happy, and a bunch from column B to try and steal votes from confused 
and perplexed Tory and Liberal voters. What a joke.
