Mark Dunn of the Kingston Whig-Standard reports that "The government will support a private member's bill that would make it a crime to wear a mask or disguise during a riot, Justice Minister Rob Nicholson said Sunday. The Concealment of Identity Act would create two Criminal Code offences with maximum penalties of five years in prison and fines of up to $5,000."
No where in the article does it define when a demonstration becomes a riot. Plus how does this affect Halloween? I am not being funny here.
What we need are less laws not more laws. This is just another way the Stephen Harpers are going to clog up the courts.
