Upside Down in the Ditch

This looks like a transparent attempt to divert public attention away from the gun murders in Toronto:
While all levels of government have recently trained their sights on tackling gangs and guns, road safety continues to command little attention, despite recent statistics that show car-crash deaths outnumber homicide by almost five to one in Canada.
Why couch this in terms of the gun crime? Is this an attempt to change the debate? Divert our attention away from the gun crime?

The Libranos have to get Ontario back onside. My read on this is that spin machine is preparing the ground for a Librano election platform to crack down harder on drunk driving. Step one: use your Librano buddies in the press to raise awareness of the problem; step two: photo-op with MADD presenting the solution.
