The leadership files

The PM in Winnipeg last night:
"Reporters were not allowed to ask Harper questions, and he made no mention of the violence that has beset Manitoba in recent weeks, including: the beheading death of Tim McLean on a Greyhound bus near Portage la Prairie last week, the police shooting of Craig McDougall last Saturday that has raised the ire of Aboriginal leaders, or the death of Michael Langan late last month after he had been shocked by Taser."
You would think that a Prime Minister might have some words of reassurance for people that have been rocked like this. Particularly one who clings to a mantle of criminal justice leadership...but nope. Nada.

Pretty interesting.
