It appears to have been highly effective and most Canadians are asking why this was not done before. Kudos to Kenney. The challenge going forward is to ensure that they are not tried in the media and court of public opinion first because their names have been made so public. That risk, however, appears to be slight. Canada should not be a safe haven and hiding place for those who want to escape the law.
