Liberals to undo Harper’s justice system reforms, to favour criminals over victims

Brian LilleyArchive

The Liberals, ably assisted by an unchallenged platform provided by CBC, are getting ready to undo years of work by the Harper government to ensure our justice system puts victims first. 

The latest examples of their effort to get back to worrying about criminals instead of victims, was their promise to get rid of a pile of mandatory minimum sentences so criminals wouldn’t spend too much time in jail, and now they want to make wiping convictions away cheaper and easier.

It seems to bother Liberals that criminals are serving longer sentences and being held to account by society for their crimes, but why? Stats reported in 2003 after a decade of Liberals running things under their preferred “ideology”, showed that 44% of convicts were back in jail within a year.

That’s not a good stat. But, Liberals think prison is about rehabilitating and they’re going to believe it no matter the facts. They’ll just erase the crimes from public view.

Recall that the push to shift the focus to victims came in 2010 after it was revealed that Graham James, the monster of a hockey coach that sexually abused boys across Canada, had been given a pardon in 2007 and with it, a chance to make more young victims.

Rather than helping victims, rather than focusing on those hurt by crime the Liberals appear set on taking us back to the good old days of a justice system run for the good of the criminals. Elections have consequences folks – don't say I didn't warn you.

Rehabilitation is not a reality for most violent offenders. Looking at the rate of recidivism the alternative is to lock them up for longer periods of time. So now the Liberals will reverse this and put their own tax paying citizens at a greater risk?

But of course Trudeau and crew have already demonstrated that they have no regard for the safety of our citizens …They are using our tax dollars to import Muslim RAPE culture to Canada….So we should not to overly surprised that they favor letting our domestic criminals out as well it will help divert if not cover up the Muslim crimes…

Well of course the LIEberals are going to, “. . . . .favour criminals over victims . . . . .” All you have to do is go back in history to see all of the CRIMINAL activity that was going on within THIS party. They can’t relate to law abiding citizen or the victims of crime. TURDO’S daddy made sure that our justice system NEVER victims first with that useless propaganda known as the Canadian Charter Rights & Freedoms. The LIEberals relate to the bottom feeding scum in our society and have ALWAYS favored a justice system run for the GOOD& the BENEFIT of the criminals.

Shortly after Harper was voted in, this native guy talked to me about how Harper was building prisons to lock away native people. This is the kind of logic the left wing has got.

There is nothing worse than a progressive with a bad idea. Even though research has shown that criminals are not likely, for the most part, to change their behaviour. These old farts like Goodale and McCallum should retire. Their “best before date” expired when the Liberals were defeated in 2006.
commented 2016-01-22 15:14:06 -0500
Once a sexual predator, always a sexual predator. These deviants can not be rehabilitated. Whether it be child molesters or serial rapists they should be removed from polite society. No amount of therapy will change their basic instincts (much to the chagrin of the talking heads who rely on this fallacy for their livelihood) Some people deserve to be put away, and sometimes life should mean life.

Quit lying Lilley. Fundies have always been punitive by nature.

What is wrong with the folks in Saskatchewan that keep electing this Goodall clown? Like McCallum he could star on the Walking Dead . . . Librano hocks left over from the 70s.
commented 2016-01-22 12:39:43 -0500
There is already blood on the hands of these Librano scum from the murders recidivist crime racks up – they want to outlaw victim self defense and arm repeat criminals with legal protection – the very text book description of an immoral regime.

How come their are so many looney voters in CANADA? (communist unions and C.B.C.may be)

Bang on. We can thank the public sector unions and the biased CBC. I could list many more sites but I think these few makes the point.

CBC, public sector unions and censorship:


“Lee said the unions are taking a page out of the 2014 Ontario election playbook, when labour campaigned against then-Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak, which helped to keep the Liberals in power.”

See Ontario:

Charleton G: Thanks. It was obvious to me before I found the link. I think we all remember the time shootings in the Toronto area alone were getting out of hand. Once Harper announced he was going to increase the time for a number of gun related offenses there was a sharp decline in the number of gun crimes. I believe it is a basic principle. People will do what they think they can get away with if you are inclined to bad behaviour. If you are inclined to steal but there are measures in place increasing the chance you will get caught you will most likely go somewhere else. If your boss puts up with chronic tardiness you will continue to do so. It’s true that the cause of crime can be complex but there is a simple truth. Nobody wants to get caught.

The Liberals are undoing everything Harper did. This should concern Newfoundlanders. If the Liberals undo Harper’s promise to provide loan guarantees for the cost of developing two underwater electrical transmission lines: one from Muskrat Falls in Labrador to the Island to supply Newfoundlanders with electricity, and the other to Nova Scotia for their use. Surplus energy could then be exported via Nova Scotia’s electrical grid to the USA.

These loan guarantees were strongly opposed by Quebecers because they break the stranglehold Quebec Hydro has over the export of electricity generated in Newfoundland’s Lower Churchill Project in Labrador. The more costly decision to build underwater electrical transmission lines was made because Quebec refused to allow energy from the Lower Churchill Project at Muskrat Falls to be sent through Quebec without major control and financial concessions by Newfoundland to Quebec. Trudeau, being the proud Quebecer he is will likely want to see Quebec maintain its hold on Churchill Falls Hydro development, hence, undo the guarantees.

Does this sound familiar. It is the same kind off extortion that the Mayor of Montreal spoke of yesterday with respect to the Energy East Pipeline. Unless Quebec gets pieced-off pipelines will be blocked. Quebec wants control of Newfoundland’s Hydro and Alberta’s and Saskatchewan’s oil. Quebec wants its “share” to be bigger, equalization is not enough. Oink, oink.

Of course, the ingrate Newfoundlander Danny Williams shit all over Harper during the last election and helped get Trudeau elected, irrespective of Harpers support for Churchill Falls. I hope Trudeau now returns the favour and bites Williams and all in the ass.

The $64 000 question in all this, would Canada be better off treating Quebec as a foreign country and negotiating treaties and get them the hell out of the election process in Canada so the rest of us can get on and build the greatness that Canada can be? I think yes.

Liberals are scary here and in the US. There is no doubt Harper’s policies were right on target.
When’s the next election again?
commented 2016-01-22 09:16:23 -0500
What else would we expect from the criminal liberal party? They have no morals and no brains. They spin lies and fairy tales to deceive and confuse the voters. In the end, they will be given up to their ways!
commented 2016-01-22 08:25:23 -0500
The Liberals have long been friendly with criminals and terrorists and blaming the victims for the actions of criminals and terrorists! This is most likely due to the Liberals being largely criminals in themselves! So they have to defend their friends against law abiding citizens. With an evil, immoral Prime Miscreant, this effort will be intensified!

I believe in tit for tat.
You kill, you die.
You kill in self-defense, you get a medal of honor.

You rape, you die. (because you are still destroying someone’s soul, thus it’s akin to destroying the victim’s life.)

Rape excludes… regretting you had sex with the individual, so you file a rape charge.
(You see this every so often, at least in America)

Leftists have this belief that people turn to crime because they either do not know any better, or because the big bad capitalist system drives them to commit crimes.
commented 2016-01-22 02:41:10 -0500
isn’t it interesting that the liberals like to hug a thug but they like to penalize legitimate law abiding gun owners.
commented 2016-01-22 02:12:19 -0500
This is all about making it less fearful for Muslims to rape little girls and boys. Slitting Mom and Dads throat, will get them, say, six months?

Liberals are just like kids, must undo everything that Harper did.

Lame brained pussy’s..Cats, that is.

I would never be a witness for or help some liberal idiot who is attacked or set upon by a criminal, wouldn’t want to offend the poor misjudged criminal.
commented 2016-01-22 00:51:38 -0500
Sean when will you left wing bleeding hearts let these scum into your homes? Oh yeah , NEVER! LMAO!
commented 2016-01-22 00:50:17 -0500
Sean Penson if hug a thug works so well then why all the missing and murdered aboriginal women? Now since harsh consequences are nothing to fear , let me see you go up to a group of Hells Angels and urinate on their bikes, or would you be afraid to do so because of the consequences?
commented 2016-01-22 00:46:50 -0500
I used to always pay attention to police actions on the street in case I could help the police. It’s pointless now, why risk my skin to support the collective?
commented 2016-01-22 00:03:31 -0500
Sean Penson…..I am sick & tired of your platitudes, if you have nothing substantial to contribute go back to CBC who welcome your drivel.
Why even bother charging the criminals when our judicial system is like a revolving door. There is no justice, not really. PM Harper worked so hard to implement these needed changes & now the Libs can hardly wait to crush the progress made by the conservatives.
commented 2016-01-21 23:34:01 -0500
It is going to be a wild RIDE for Canadians once these Liberals – let loose the Dawgs of Progression. What ever you once thought was right -is now wrong.

Patriotism to Canada is now a Sin. Please don’t mention Canadian Culture—- YOU don’t have a Culture anymore.
You are a Christian ? You dare to carry a Cross ? Just think of how many people you OFFEND.
After all , you did steal the land from the Natives.

Hey Shaun,
Why don’t you offer your home to a repeat violent offender, give the person milk and cookies, and see what happens.
