Hotties and naughties of civil liberties

We do things a little differently here in Vancouver? This particular item is so many kinds of weird, I don't even know how to snark at it.

The 2005 list of "hotties and naughties" for the BC Civil Liberties Association has been released and the Vancouver Police are making an appearance on both sides of the list.

The list recognizes people the association believes have helped and hindered civil liberties.

This year the Vancouver Police Department is being applauded for posting their policy manual on the V-P-D website.

But Police Chief Constable Jamie Graham made the "naughty" list for suggesting new Mayor Sam Sullivan be investigated after admitting he allowed a drug user to smoke crack in the back of his van years ago.


The list has been around for years...formerly called brickbats and bouquets.
