Public Safety Minister Vic Toewes Tells Canadians to Have No Fear Once Khadr's Here

Quoth the minister:
I want to assure Canadians that there are mechanisms in the law today that allow authorities to monitor an individual even though a formal sentence may have expired.
Mechanisms, Vic? Really? What kind of mechanisms can keep a Canadian citizen from logging on to the 'net and plotting jihad? And even if there were such mechanisms, wouldn't they be so intrusive and draconian that they'd impinge on other Canadians' civil liberties?

Sorry, Vic, but I can't say that I'm terribly reassured by your reassurances. (Love the 'stache, though.)
