    Denis “disappointed” Ottawa not budging on legal aid funding

    The federal government won’t increase its financial contribution to provincial and territorial legal aid programs despite a united push by justice ministers from across the country at a conference this week in Banff.

    This is disheartening. Government has virtually unlimited funds to pay prosecutors to go after the very people that give them those funds, but won't pony up a few extra dollars to give those that can't afford legal assistance a chance.

    Talk about being beaten with our own shoes. Justice, not for all.

    Looks good on their "tough on crime" push. Got to get those prison numbers up!
