I wrote about this almost a year ago. At that time Rob Nicholson was just becoming the Justice Minister. The Niagara Falls Review asked Mr. Nicholson then and there "would this Conservative government be trying to bring back the death penalty?" In 1987, the Justice Minister, then with the Mulroney Government, voted FOR the death penalty.
This week the true Alliance/Reform/Conservative reared its ugly head when they decided not to appeal for a Canadian citizen on death row in Montana. Strangely, the Justice Minister wasn't allowed to talk to the media.
Anyone see the writing on the wall here?
