It’s OK to use entrapment to catch terrorists

Re: “RCMP may have acted illegally: judge,” Nov. 19. After viewing the videos in the Nuttall-Korody case, one would assume this case is clear-cut. However, nothing is simple when it comes to our legal system.

Now the police are the bad guys and the lawyers will drag this out for another year or two. And why not? For them, this is a windfall with the taxpayer footing the bill.

If it takes entrapment to catch terrorists, so be it. We are facing the most dangerous time in history and our leaders need to respond accordingly.

The other side is playing hardball while Canada insists on playing slo-pitch.
