A new bureaucracy?

Stephen Harper today proposed a Director of Public Prosecutions today, which would independently take over responsibility for all federal criminal prosecutions. While many may welcome this - and indeed who wouldn't like to see more Liberals go to prison, do we really need a new bureaucracy.

Look at what's happened with special prosecutors in the US. The tend to investigate for years (remember Whitewater) and then they find crimes that may be totally unrelated (look at the current investigation of the Plame leak). Is this what we truly want?

Is our desire to punish the Liberals so intense that we have to set up a permanent inquiry? Let's think twice about this one.
