And the Americanization of Canada continues.
This hardening attitude among Canadians is revealed in a new Angus Reid public opinion survey that found 62 per cent of respondents favour capital punishment for murderers, while 31 per cent believe that rapists should be put to death.
The figure is a significant boost from the last such survey, in 2004, when 48 per cent favoured capital punishment for murderers.
The next federal election will be fought on crime and "small government". Locking people away and firing public servants. Should play well to their base and, unfortunately, a growing number of normal Canadians.
