Mandatory drug testing of ferry crews is just the kind of solution 
that a conservative with tunnel vision would come up with.

Let's just trot down the path of the U.S. model and start chiselling 
down the rights of private citizens. Maybe we should have a torture 
bill of our own because, after all, we have the safety of the public 
to think about and we can do no wrong if our intentions are right. Right?

If we really want to do something drastic to promote public safety in 
transportation, maybe we should strip car manufacturers of the right 
to advertise their latest model tearing down a city street at 
breakneck speed. That's where people are being killed.
