This was proposed by an ultra-Conservative Senator (who was appointed to the Senate by our ultra-Conservative Prime Minister). To be fair, his family has been directly impacted by violent crime. The bigger picture is that crime rates in Canada are falling, our P.M. ignores the facts of falling crime and is sinking billions into expanding the police/prison system, then cuts old age pensions to try to balance the books. We have a government of dick-heads, ass-hats, and nut-jobs......

Just leave a noose hanging somewhere in the cell. If they want to croak themselves,so be it. If not, so be it. Sounds like good business to me.

So all of a sudden all `murderers` are somehow evil and deserve to die regardless of the situation. The problem lies with the simple, shallow minded pric*s who think like that and maintain a so called justice system that is based on ancient bull*hit Christian beliefs and is more about punishment than actually rehabilitating people. OldOllie, you appear to be one of those pric*s.

That`s a stupid idea on a practical level and morally impaired. I bet the proponent is a Christian.

While it`s a punishment for their crime the main purpose is rehabilitation. That said you seem only to care that they suffer it out. I don`t think they should get an easy way out either but maybe if we stop pushing non-violent people into our overcrowded systems we`d have more money for programs that put these a-holes to work giving back to the world.

Why waste them? We could use them in pharmaceutical trials. Then when they get too messed up for that, we can send the over to the medical college for practice surgery.

I don`t see the issue, what if a murderer hung himself at home? Most likely no one would care, so than why you suddenly care if it happens in jail.

Sometimes the only way to cure a rabid dog is to put a bullet in its brain.

I work at the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa so I see that guy on a daily basis. He lost his 2 daughters; one in 2002, rape/murder, the other in 2005, drunk driver. Also I think his wife lost a leg in the accident. It`s easier to understand him once you know he`s been through such hardship.

So...the idea is that anyone who can get into a murderer`s cell with the murderer is free to murder them and have it ruled suicide?

If that isn`t the idea, they haven`t thought it through.

Hahaha! Canadian Senators are funny.
Appointed for life, have to show up for work 3 times every 2 years.
At least this one has the guts to say what he thinks.

if i was incacerated in a cell for 10 years with a rope there the entire time i`d probably go crazy and kill myself any way... the option should be there, not years of ropey torment.

I think we should give them a rope and put a speaker infront of their cell playing barney music...
