What is it with Ontario prosecutors? And STILL they're going after Ian Thomson for having the nerve to defend himself and his home from a late-night molotov cocktail attack. Something is very, very wrong in the Ontario legal system. Heads need to roll, and charges of malicious prosecution need to be laid.

It is good to see.

It's an absolute travesty that charges were laid in the first place. The Crown's admission that there was no reasonable prospect of conviction is not a vindication of the right to defend oneself, it just means they didn't think a judge, or a judge and jury, would convict the accused if it went to trial. This doesn't negate the fact that we still need a "castle doctrine" in this country.
