Defence, prosecution alike reject PC attack on bail system

A very good article by Kirk Makin on John Tory's baseless allegations of "catch and release" policy.  The Ontario voters should be concerned that someone who doesn't even take the time or effort to consider an issue properly before rushing in and standing on a platform of law and order.  Does he really think that people from Ontario are so gullible, fearful, and uneducated as to willingly accept such a crude and short-sighted mentality towards the justice system?

A campaign assault on the bail system by Ontario Conservative Leader John Tory has accomplished the rare feat of uniting both the prosecution and defence bar against his claims.

Even hard-line police advocates are having trouble defending Mr. Tory's claims as well as the targets he has identified in a series of recent commercials and speeches.
