Canadian Judgment

Well in a stunning display of the type of judgment we can continue to expect from the Canadian Government, Irwin Cottler, the Justice Minister, is considering extraditing Marc Emery (story // donate to Emery's legal fund) - or at least hasn't issued a statement saying that he won't extradite him.

On the other hand, a Toronto man who was sending weapons-grade tritium (used for making nuclear weapons) to the states will not be extradited, because, as the Justice Minister's spokesperson so eloquently puts it, "it's only a little radioactive." (link from Colbert's Comments)

Whether or not you agree with either of these decisions, you've got to admit that priorities might be a little messed up here. Selling people something they're going to use anyways (on their own bodies!) vs. the possibility of assisting in the creation of a nuclear weapon (I think I can safely say most people would not condone the use of a bomb on their body).
At least they're questioning the guy.
