There ought to be a law

Normally I don't say that there ought to be a law. I usually subscribe to the theory that any time someone uses that phrase, that really, there ought NOT to be a law.

But in this case, there is an exception. I think that there should be a law stating that any person properly convicted of a crime in a court of law should not receive ANY government cheques. No GST Rebates, no pension payments, no CPP, no supplement. They shouldn't receive Child Tax benefit cheques or the Universal Childcare Benefit. They shouldn't receive ANY of it. These cheques should be confiscated by the government as partial repayment for room and board and the cost of other benefits like free education. It's only fair.
