Many wonder why British Columbia is in the state it is in as a World Criminal Superpower (MacCleans Magazine 2008) and why Stricter Crime Bills the Conservative Government under Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been trying to pass are constantly being stonewalled by Liberals who hold the majority in the Senate.
Certainly one guarantee is if this convicted International Drug Trafficker has his trial in British Columbia, rest assured Convicted International Drug Trafficker Ranjiit Singh Cheema would be walking our streets today, serving little time in Prison.
Certainly as our election date approaches is it any wonder British Columbians, are rethinking their politics and intend on voting Conservative enmasse for a change.
A change of policy one hopes will turf Liberals out on their arse, when it comes to their inability to clearly see the Criminal history in British Columbia and the victims of crimes who feel their voices are muffled by liberals such as this Politician who feel no harm, no foul in letting this International Drug Trafficker walk among us.
This letter speaks volumes of the Liberals in Canada and speaks volumes on a US court Judge who will ignore such stupidity from a Politician unclear on the concept of our "War on Drugs" and why under Liberal rule, gangs, drugs, murders, rapes and other crimes will continue to flourish under a Liberal Government, who feel everyone deserves a 128th chance. (My past story showed hundreds of criminals walking our Provincial Liberal governed streets continue to walk among us with one convicted criminal with 128 convictions, hence the province term Super Criminal)
Surrey MP wrote letter in support of drug trafficker

Surrey Liberal MP Sukh Dhaliwal has written to a U.S. District Court judge on official House of Commons stationery in support of convicted international drug trafficker Ranjit Singh Cheema, The Vancouver Sun has learned.
Cheema was sentenced in California this week to five years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to smuggle 200 kilograms of heroin from Pakistan to North America in 1998.
The drugs were supposed to be exchanged with cocaine from a Colombian cartel in a deal that was intercepted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
The Liberal MP says in the letter that he was approached by Malkiat Singh Cheema, the 40-year-old trafficker's dad, "to write a letter of recommendation for Mr. Ranjit Singh Cheema, who has pleaded guilty to drug-related crime.
" Dhaliwal's letter, dated July 9, 2008 and addressed to Judge Stephen V. Wilson, says the Newton-North Delta MP had met Cheema at "community engagements" and that the gangster seemed to be fully rehabilitated after fighting extradition for 10 years.
"He has become an active member of the community, a father and a husband who set down strong roots in Lower Mainland Vancouver area, But police in B.C. strongly disagreed that Cheema changed his ways before his extradition earlier this year, saying he remained a player in organized crime up until he was sent to the U.S. to face charges.
In fact, Supt. John Robin, then head of the B.C. Integrated Gang Task Force, told The Sun when Cheema was extradited last January that investigators "have continued to look at him for a variety of organized crime and gang activities and we're continuing to investigate offences that he might be involved in."

Extradition upheld for accused trafficker Ranjit Singh Cheema should face 1998 heroin charges in California, appeal court rules

An accused international drug trafficker was taken into custody Monday after the B.C. Court of Appeal ruled he should be extradited to California on charges he was part of an international heroin ring a decade ago.
Vancouver resident Ranjit Singh Cheema has launched a series of unsuccessful legal battles to avoid being sent south since he was charged by the U.S. in February 1998.
In the latest round, he had argued that a Pakistani named Mohammed Yusuf Khan was acting illegally as an agent of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration when he met with Cheema in Vancouver in April 1997 to discuss their plan to import more than 200 kilograms of heroin into North America.
