No Bacon, Plz!
The Correctional Service of Canada has awarded $2000 and a “human rights victory” to an incarcerated Muslim criminal, because the prison refused to replace the bacon in his breakfast:
"A Muslim inmate has won $2,000 and a partial human rights victory over a Correctional Service of Canada policy not to replace bacon with a halal diet for Islam-worshipping cons."

And this is paid by our tax dollars, folks.

He should have been told to go to halal hell, get your ass in prison in this country and you take what's going, no buffets. But of course this is Trudeau's Charter run country so this prisoner has all the rights of law abiding citizens.
New menus in prisons will now include a smorgasbord for Islamics. Let's hope we get enough of them behind bars to make it worth the bother.

Me mum better get out her purse. She made me eat veggies for years against my will.Now really,why would we pay him? Would it not make more sense to tell the prick that if he didn't like bacon then don't eat the stuff. It's not like they are starving in jail.

It's more than about the bacon but it's also making use of the tool available to them here, thanks to Trudeau.

What ever happened to old fashioned bread and a cuppa water? how about Gruel served three times
a day and the lash on Friday morning - at one time
bacon and eggs were considered such a luxury by the Government of Canada RCAF Mess Halls only served
the dish to selected aircrews - Layton has suggested a Chinese diet featuring egg rolls and fortune cookies (get out of jail free inside every 1,000
fortune cookie) bi-lingual menu of course. Macleod

Having worked 16 years for CSC, I doubt any of you have any idea of how bad things have become there. This particular example is really just the norm for what goes on in the name of "rights" all paid for by tax payers.

"I doubt any of you have any idea of how bad things have become there."
..donchya mean how "good" things have become there?
Bad implies actual punishment, not Club Fed.

And here's a short video that makes the point:

tomax7 - yes, I meant bad in the sense of how ridiculous and insane it has become. Punishment is actually banned from the CSC vocabulary.

Put him in solitary so he (the unlucky dog) can't contaminate those around him. Feed him a vegetarian diet which is something he can't complain is against his religion.

. . . and NO TV privileges. It'll just arouse his western hatred.

With TV privileges he'd demand a link to Al Jazeera, surely that's another Right to get info from his tribal base.
