...Because they contradict the neo-con worldview.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Reality has a liberal bias.
If you were to look at the facts - that the crime rate in Canada has been declining for the past 20 years, and that in a poll with a margin of error of 2.5% only 1% of Canadians think crime is the issue that the government should focus on the most - would you embark on a multi-billion dollar, prison-building, tough-on-crime spree?
Well, the Harper government doesn't care about facts. It does not care about what the country needs, or what the Canadian people want. What Harper and his cronies care about is shifting Canada's Overton window to the right. They're concerned with ideology, not reality.
