It was looking like they were content to ride the bandwagon but now they seem to have a delusional belief that they're leading the parade. Despite advice from the USA about the folly of mandatory minimum sentences, our justice minister Rob Nicholson said the law, which includes mandatory minimum sentences for drug offences, is "very targeted."

"We develop our criminal law legislation looking at the experiences from around the world, from Britain and other countries," Nicholson said at a news conference Wednesday in Regina.

"But again, ours is a Canadian solution to Canadian issues and we make no apology for that."
