yes, that's a consideration...

Although the likelihood of that occurring on a scale of 1 to 10 would have to be 1...Here's another possible scenario -- since Canada has been accused in the newspapers of "torture" (one of the suspected 17 terrorists in Toronto was brought into court, and he held up his shackled hands and claimed he was being "tortured" -- reporters noted that there were no marks on his body).

Anyway, given Human Rights Watch, and Amnesty International, etc., etc, I'm waiting for their allegations that Canada is a state that willfully and brutally tortures its citizens...Once this becomes well-known, then the likelihood of ever "deporting" Pals to Canada will become (thanks to that ever vigilant and watchful eye of Human "rights" organizations around the world) quite impossible...(Actually, this is not really all that funny -- what these so-called human rights organizations are doing is making it increasingly difficult for the public to separate real torturers from the alleged ones...thus, every state, de facto, becomes a state which sanctions "torture." Again, in a way, amusing -- Amnesty International and HRW are both losing any credibility.

Right now a HRW (or was it AI) is striving like crazy to get the Canadian public motivated because Iran has put some "bad" guy in power at the UN Commission for Human "Rights" -- a Canadian journalist went to Iran and for her photos was picked up by Iranian state authorities -- captured, tortured and murdered. The Canadian government treats this affair with only lukewarm interest...(but, then I suspect this callousness arises from Canadian public's general lack of regard with respect to issues of alleged "injustices" -- the CBC has been a huge trumpeter of false allegations against the U.S., Israel, etc., much like AI or HRW -- like the boy who cries "Wolf!" -- they're not taken seriously.)

Anyway, thoughts of deporting depraved psychopaths to some deserted island (and/or frozen arctic tundra), I find comforting, but unlikely to ever actually occur...
