LETTERS

When I read that the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 1985 that bank deposits were not tangible assets and could not be confiscated (“Hiding the drug money,” Cover, Oct. 23), I became depressed. Is helping drug dealers the court’s idea of justice? Have they considered the human suffering that that money represents? Do they have to have a crack house spring up next to their homes to get them into the real world? And isn’t it possible that some of those ill-gotten gains enrich fancy lawyers who help criminals to escape their just dues? Is that justice?

After months of agonizing internal debate, the federal Conservative government was at last ready to introduce its long-delayed compromise legislation on abortion—but there was one final hurdle. As Justice Minister Douglas Lewis and his staff gathered at 7 a.m. last Friday in his third-floor office a block from Parliament Hill, rumors surfaced that a group of New Democratic Party MPs who favor abortion on demand would resort to procedural tactics in an attempt to block the bill’s introduction.

Tories who act like Conservatives

Watching Via Rail being slashed, Air Canada being sold, foreign aid being cut, the CBC being squeezed and whatever it is that is being done to the post office, Canadians yelp in outrage. Who do these Tories think they are, we ask? The answer is that the Tories think they are Tories.
