From Ezra Levant's Shakedown - 8
Although Alberta is often regarded as the freest Canadian province - it certainly thinks of itself that way, like a Texas of the north - it has been one of the most brutal in its enforcement of the thought crimes section of its human rights law,. (p. 83)Hello? Hello? Do we have a connection here? Of course we do.
When a tough jurisdiction goes bad, it goes mega-bad. A candy-ass jurisdiction that goes bad will let half the targets go if they are clean and polite, and their handwriting is neat.
Now, by my advice, government should only prosecute real crime, not pretend crime, which is what the "human rights" commissions do.
When taking down drug lords and terrorists, we can afford a Texas of the north. It's actually quite useful (= if you don't like our jails, don't commit crimes here and you won't ever see the inside of one). But a tough jurisdiction is a way worse evil than a soft one when the crimes are only imaginary (cf "human rights" commissions).
