What is unreported crime?

Yesterday Treasury Board Minister Stockwell Day made the claim that unreported crime has increased. At first I really didn't think much of what he was saying. In later reflection I thought what exactly is an unreported crime?

Is it....

- the dog owners who don't clean up after their dog defecates on my lawn?
- the people next door disturbing the peace at 5:00 am who make unhuman like sounds mixed with profanity while having sex?
- the old man who holds up traffic by driving his rascal down the middle of my street?

Or is it ...

- a government who breaks their own election law without a single member of that party filing a grievance or complaint?
- ministers who leave sensitive government documents lying around?

In any case I am somewhat confused by what Mr. Day was trying to establish with his statements. In the end I could not follow his logic as to how these unreported crimes demanded more prisons.

Leave your comments below of what you think an unreported crime may be...

Did Some More Chequing Around

Yesterday I posted some pictures of MP's with their BIG cheques who had not yet been identified as being part of the cheque-scheme.

However, there were a few more that I cam across which you will find below.

Royal Galipeau, MP Ottawa Orleans. This one is a tad vague, but you can make out his signature and name if you look hard enough.

Paul Calandra, Oak Ridges-Markham

Bob Dechert, MP Mississauga-Erindale

Ed Holder - London West

Mike Wallace, MP Burlington

This last one appears to have something in the bottom right hand corner that appears to say the Honourable ..... ? Bonus points for the person who can figure out the name. My bet is Gordon O'Connor, MP Carleton-Mississippi Mills.
