Pot: "The growers are winning and the situation is out of control." & "Bold U.S. voice to the U.N."

Crime's down -- that's the government's standard line

There are 4 dead RCMP officers and the government plays games with the "justice" system. There is no justice for victims whom the government continually ignores; furthermore, the government is not preventing them from becoming victims in the first place.

Out of control: Criminal justice system 'on the brink of imploding' Chad Skelton, Vancouver Sun, Mar. 11, 05. If you would like to contact the journalist, he has provided this email address: It is time for the citizenry to get involved with any help they can offer.

With more than 4,500 reports last year of illegal indoor pot-growing operations, B.C. police cannot keep up.

Lawbreakers have to rack up nine or more prior drug convictions before they have a better than 50-50 chance of being sent to jail. Children
are found in one-fifth of grow-ops raided. In B.C.'s war against marijuana-growing operations, a groundbreaking new study makes one thing clear: The growers are winning and the situation is out of control.

First of a two-day series

Police are less likely to investigate marijuana growers, prosecutors are less likely to lay charges against them, and judges are less likely to send them to jail than they were in the late 1990s, according to a groundbreaking study to be released today. [. . . . ]

This is lengthy, detailed, worth reading.

Here you have Liberal heaven, it would seem, since the federal government inadequately funds and inadequately mans the security services that would pursue those involved in this criminal industry -- a thriving industry.

Somehow, I do not believe that all the good, decent MP's of all parties want this.

If, as an MP you have not made it out of the Parliamentary back benches, it may signify that you wear a badge of honour and innate decency, given what is being revealed over time in several areas. This is your chance to stand and be counted. Get to it. NJC

Bold U.S. voice to the U.N. R. Emmett Tyrrell, Washington Times, Mar. 11, 05.

R. Emmett Tyrrell is founder and editor in chief of the American Spectator, a contributing editor to the New York Sun, and an adjunct scholar at the Hudson Institute. His latest book is "Madame Hillary: the Dark Road to the White House."

Given the deplorable moral condition of the United Nations over the past dozen years, I have longed for a U.S. representative of the quality of Pat Moynihan or Jeane Kirkpatrick. Admittedly a Moynihan or a Kirkpatrick are rare finds, but surely some stentorian voice could be found to abuse the United Nations with a recitation of democratic values. Now President Bush has found one in nominating the State Department's John Bolton to serve where Mr. Moynihan and Mrs. Kirkpatrick served so memorably. [. . . . ]
