When Are The Tories Going to Exploit the Williams Case to Revisit Capital Punishment?

Canada's radical Right, a.k.a. the Conservative Party, didn't get where they are today by passing up any opportunity to exploit emotion and, right now, the most emotional thing - thanks hugely to the lurid appetites of Canada's media - is the Russell Williams murder case.

On a strictly emotional level I suspect a lot of us would support the execution of Williams and that's blood I suspect the Tory sharks scent.

So, what do you think?  Will the Wedgies go for it - again?  You know they're aching for a tasty bit of the ol' eye for an eye.

OMG, I hadn't considered that but you're probably right.

Knowing how Harper rules (like a coward), I'm guessing he might set up a Private Member's Bill aka government legislation as a trial balloon.

Given that they are already trying to remove his pension, and they are trying to do that for others that they find less savoury....
