We have been against the proposal to change the rules for pardons proposed under Bill C23 ever since the government introduced the legislation over one year ago.
The Pardons system is working as evidenced by the incredibly low number of those re-offending once a pardon is granted. Changing the name from “Pardons” to “Record Suspension” is inconsequential as the affect of removing a criminal record from public record will still be the same. We are opposed to the longer wait times proposed in the new legislation Bill C10.
Here is a great article from the Toronto Star entitled “10 Reasons to Oppose Bill C-10”
