Two individuals are now in the RCMP’s custody after apparently having plotted to blow up a Via Rail passenger train going from Toronto to New York City. One of them seems to have some opinions about Canada’s criminal code, and voiced them to the judge presiding over his arraignment.
Here’s what he said: “All of those conclusions [were] taken out based on [the] Criminal Code and all of us we know that this Criminal Code is not a holy book. It’s just written by a set of creations and the creations they’re not perfect because only the Creator is perfect. We cannot rely on the conclusions taken out from these judgments.”
First of all, I assume this guy is his own lawyer, saying something like that before the court…after actually having been warned that anything he said could be used in future court proceedings. I mean, way not to look guilty or anything…telling the judge, essentially, that only Allah is really going to judge this case.
But there you have it, folks. The Criminal Code is not a holy book. What a concept. Everyone write that down in a notebook so you can refer to it later.
Hopefully, this also means that the Koran is not a Canadian law book as well. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how people are going to play that, though.
