‘Oh, Canada’

I’m a bit confused why serial killer Colonel Russell Williams is in jail, considering the established Canadian custom of allowing torturers and murderers to avoid prosecution simply by issuing an “apology” and a bit of money to their victims.

Our government and churches got away with that quite recently, and they caused the death of a lot more people than did Colonel Russ in their “Indian residential schools.” But of course, their victims were not white women.

Oh, Canada.
