Not even the National Post will go for this!


The National Post on Harper’s death-penalty stance:

“But it is an inescapable fact that our Parliament rejected the death penalty as immoral in a 1976 free vote. Until this collective national judgment is formally reversed, it is inappropriate for our government to stand mute as a Canadian is subjected to a punishment in the United States that we ourselves would never permit.”

Now the National Post does not come right out and oppose the death penalty, I’m not sure what their editorial stance is on this matter. To their credit though, regardless of their stance, at least the National Post sees this as an issue for parliament. If Harper wants to change the rules, he should say so.
