Alberta Primetime, March 17

Although I believe putting green food colouring in your beer on St. Patrick’s Day is a crime, I wasn’t able to convince the folks at Alberta Primetime to include it in tonight’s panel discussion. Consultant and former Edmonton police chief Fred Rayner, Calgary defence lawyer David Andrews and I will have a decidedly more sober slate of issues to discuss:

  • Fresh musings from the Harper government that it will soon allow police to randomly stop motorists they suspect of driving drunk.
  • The crime-fighting merits (or not) of a new provincial bill that will give police the power to seize body armour from gangsters and known criminals.
  • The fatal shooting at an Edmonton car dealership. The suspended employee who killed a coworker and wounded another before shooting himself was convicted of manslaughter in the 1970s — yet was able to amass a large gun collection.

(Alberta Primetime airs live at 7 p.m. MDT on Access TV: Channel 13 in Calgary; Channel 351 on Bell TV; Channel 267 on Shaw Direct/Star Choice. You can visit the show’s segment archive to view past discussions about crime and other topics.)
