Newman: Who had the right response to the Boston Marathon attack, Justin Trudeau or Stephen Harper?

On one hand, you have a response that is completely tone deaf.

On the other, you have a response more suitable from a hanging judge.

In my view a more appropriate response from either or both would be:

"There is no justification for what happened in Boston. It is completely unacceptable in a civilized democratic society where open dissent is available to anyone with the courage and conviction to express it. Those responsible for these cowardly acts should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law."
