Having lived in Toronto for twelve years (1991 to 2003) I would have thought that in Ontario that "honour killing" was part of the multi-cultural mosaic. Dalton McGuinty wanted to introduce Sharia Law in Ontario and may yet. Of course it remains to be seen if the prosecution may secure a conviction. The defence will probably demand that the jurors be selected from among the members of the mosque of the accused. Something about being judged by one's peers as if burglars are tried before a jury of convicts rather than honest folks.

Even if Muhammad Parvez is convicted we taxpayers will have the privilege of paying seventy grand a year to house him in some club fed where he will be catered to his halal diet while he works on his golf handicap, tennis serve or horseback riding. Meanwhile, now doubt, his better eighths will collect welfare. Better to deport him back to whatever fourth world excuse for a country he came from - that would be punishment.

He's from Pakistan. It's the country that has the dubious honor of having what is believed to be the highest absolute number of dishonor killings per annum.
