Sure, But It's All That Keeps the Bats From Escaping

Federal Court judge Luc Martineau isn't impressed by Harper Public Safety and Family Values minister Vic Toews.   The judge has given Toews 45 days to accept the transfer back to this country of a Canadian currently held in a U.S. prison.

The judge found that Toews resistance to the transfer "lacks reason", ignores "clear evidence" in support of the transfer and suggests a "closed mind."

That's about as close as a sitting judge could come to calling Toews "unhinged."   Then again, a closed mind is about all that keeps the bats from escaping  from Toews head.

Toews is such a spiteful, petty man. Harper must think he's a real keeper given that both of them love to punish people. His move to cancel prison fundraising pizza nights was nothing short of vindictive.

Hi BY. Yes, Toews does have a mean streak that runs right to the core and I'll bet a lot of people, other than inmates, have experienced it. From the first time I saw him I have figured there was something not quite right with VT.

BTW - Happy holidays, BY.
