Canadian govt: no TSA security measures needed

Canada's Conservative government has said that it will not institute American "enhanced" pat-downs and that its electronic scanners do not pose a safety risk like that of the Michael Chertoff pornoscanners.  The comments were made by transport minister Chuck Strahl during yesterday's question time in parliament.

Note, however, the opposition's reaction.  Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff -- of neocon "Lesser Evil" infamy -- is nonchalant about aggressive US-style security measures:
That’s what we have to do to keep us safe. ... I have long ceased worrying about these issues,” he said. “We have to keep this country safe and the people I feel strongly in support of are the hard-working security scanners. It’s not a great job. It’s tough. You’re wearing rubber gloves all day long.
