Prime Minister Stephen Harper says his government will introduce legislation next week to ensure the country's most dangerous murderers aren't allowed back on the streets. Harper says some offenders could be sentenced to life without parole. John Howard Society of Canada executive director Catherine Latimer says current laws already are keeping the worst criminals from returning to the community. (The legislation would apply to those convicted of first-degree murder involving the killing of police officers or correctional officers, kidnapping, sexual assault or other "brutal" crimes.)
