BARING ARMS – NOT BEARING ARMS!
Last week, some female reporters and political staffers decided to expose the absurdity of the dress code at the B.C. legislature by defiantly baring their arms. The dress code police had been harassing women to cover up but they decided enough was enough. Now Speaker Darryl Plecas has ruled that business attire for women can include sleeveless dresses, shirts and blouses even as a full dress code review is being carried out. Last week, I had posted this comment online when the Vancouver Sun ran the story: “Yes, women (or men) should not be allowed to BEAR arms in the House – but BARE arms are just fine!”
GUNS RENTED TO CRIMINALS
Ontario’s Peel Regional Police Chief Chris McCord last week told Brampton City Council that handguns are rented out to criminals who return the weapons after carrying out a crime. The cost for renting them: anywhere up to $2,000. Talking about the largest single seizure of illegal guns in Peel police history, he said the high-capacity magazine police found can fire 60 bullets in 4.5 seconds and could have been used with any of the 16 handguns police had seized. According to Brampton Guardian, McCord told council: “Where there is a need for that in Brampton, I have no idea.”
