McLean's family is selling T-shirts, buttons and fridge magnets to support its effort to press the government for the legislation. The items are made by Speer and her husband, who operate a promotional product business in Winnipeg.
(Speer is aunt to Tim Mclean)
Understanding everyone grieves differently, and as a parent, I feel for this family and this mother. That said, I disagree with the very concept of Tim's Law. It seems by it's nature inhumane and as a Mother, I do not think I would want my childs name linked to an inhumane law. Mentally ill people have long suffered at the whims of society. For having a brain that does not function correctly. They have been imprisoned, beaten, tortured, drowned, electro-shocked, does anyone think it is pleasant or wonderful to be mentally ill?
Vince Li is not going to go free. He will likely be incarcerated for the rest of his life. I do not see how Vince Li can be held "responsible".
Also recalling the brutal murder/dismemberment and tortures conducted by Paul Bernardo and his wife, Karla Homolka. I do not remember their victims families promoting products to support any political efforts.
This leaves a bad taste in my mouth, I don't know. It could be just me. But, that is my opinion. And, if anyone wishes to disagree with me, please feel free, but do so with courtesy. Don't use the cover of anonymity to attack people who have a different opinion. That is cowardly.
