A political, cynical crime bill?

Canada's crime rate will almost certainly continue its downward trend after the Conservative Party's omnibus crime bill goes into effect, and Harper will claim this continued trend as a party victory. It will fall to the opposition parties to argue that such an outcome is in fact illusory: the legislation will have cost Canadians billions of dollars without providing any actual improvement in quality of life or public safety. Harper may as well put billions into constructing a wall meant to deter an elephant invasion, then claim it "worked" when no elephants subsequently attack Canada.
