Funny, his pop had no problems “teaching” “lessons” to terrorists and murderers on our soil. Best thing the old man ever did, too.
(Bleeding hearts? “Let them go ahead and bleed…”)
UPDATE from a reader via email:
Have to differ with you on this one. The elder Trudeau certainly talked a good game, but let’s not forget that, ultimately, he gave in to the FLQ and flew six of them them to Cuba aboard a Canadian Forces aircraft. Then-Justice Minister John Turner declared that they would be exiled to Cuba for life. But as we know, many of them went to France afterward, and Trudeau did not request extradition from the French government. By 1980 most had returned to Canada; some “exile for life”! None of the murderers of Pierre Laporte, incidentally, ever served their full “life” sentences–between 7 and 11 years, at most.
Trudeau knew how to deal with terrorists, all right. He rolled over then, and his kids would have us roll over now.
