Prison industry is the CONservatives’ only real growth industry

Re: Problems in the world bigger than pot and breasts (The News, Oct. 23).
True to form, Mrs. Cherryl Katnich castigates a women for standing up for women’s rights and equality, and yet another for trying to keep Canada from overtaking America as the country with the most of its citizens in prison per capita in the whole world.
It seems the prison industry is the CONservatives’ only real growth industry, right up there with the tar sands. The Cons disregard that 68 per cent of the citizens of BC want pot legalized, and 52 per cent of Canadians want the same.
Well, since when have CONservatives, or Harper, or Katnich for that matter, ever cared what the majority of Canadians want.
I find it ironic that Katnich is a slavish champion of the very corporate and government whores that are the cause of every major problem she mentioned – world poverty, genocide, wars, starvation and every other problem the world is faced with at this dangerous time in history.
Katnich is living proof that cognitive dissonance is alive and well in Canada and at least someone thinks there is an audience for ultra-right -wing tea-bagger rhetoric in Canada.
