I think you should write an article about why people who drive drunk 
and kill four old ladies only get four years in jail while people who 
are charged in non-violent drug crimes get far worse sentences.

Why is Stephen Harper putting mandatory minimums on marijuana and 
letting people like Wladyslaw Bilski walk off with only four years? 
Is it only me who sees this complete lack of justice or is this the 
Canada we now live in?

Harper needs to put science before ideology and stop his crazy war on 
marijuana before our prisons in Canada turn out like the ones in the 
states. Some of our prisons are already overcrowded. Did you know 
that with this new bill (C-15, mandatory minimums for small amounts 
of drugs), Harper has no plans to build new prisons to hold the 
massive increase of people they will could soon hold?
