During the election campaign Paul Martin attributed violent crime to "the consequences of exclusion".
It appears, however, since the door to her kiosk was apparently locked, Montreal teenage murder victim Brigitte Serre suffered the consequences of inclusion. It appears likely she opened the door to her attackers.
If exclusion causes crime, then my recommendation is that high-risk persons be assigned to work in Liberal MP constituency offices, and be invited to stay in Liberal homes with Liberal families. If Paul Martin is right about crime, this should have a beneficial effect.
For my money, I think citizens like Brigitte Serre would have been better served by a no-nonsense, no-excuses conservative approach to crime and punishment. It is too late to help this Brigitte, but maybe not the next one.
