Last week Glover appeared on a panel, the topic crime. Here's an excerpt:
There’s a problem when you talk about numbers. First and foremost, when you talk about that number you just provided, does that include things that perhaps don’t cost money? For example, in our prison systems, we promote reunification of families. That doesn’t cost a dime. We promote that our inmates visit counsellors when they need to speak to someone. That doesn’t cost a dime. So, again, numbers can be skewed any which way, but I do take issue with the misleading comments made by my colleagues. I worked in this system. I’ll tell you straightforward, Canadians are seeing an increase in crime. I don’t care what Stats Canada has reported because they only count reported crime. They do not count unreported crimes. And as a police officer, I’ll tell you, I worked sex crimes for four and a half years, 92% of sex crime victims do not report their crime.
Follow the hilarity for a moment. Glover doesn't care what Stats Canada reports, their numbers are meaningless, THEN she uses her own STAT as retort. Alright then, stats bad unless they further my argument, then by all means.
Yesterday, Glover appeared on another panel, this time dealing with the Graham James issue. Glover started accusing the Liberals of not supporting certain measures, when in fact they had, confirmed by the NDP member of the panel. I'm sitting there in disbelief, because I've yet to see one appearance by Glover that I would catergorize as effective. About all I see is a complete lack of sophistication and depth, bordering on amateurish.
Shelly Glover may well prove to be an asset, but I would submit it remains to be seen for which party.
