Very often when speaking to people on the phone about getting a Canada Pardon, they tell us that they have procrastinated for years before mustering the courage, strength, necessity of calling Pardons Canada to get an old criminal record removed.
It is always surprising that people wait so long, but it is human nature to want to avoid painful parts of their past lives. Regardless, once they make the call, there is often a huge emotional and mental relief that the old criminal record will finally be removed.
Here is a letter we recently received from a person we helped to get a Canada Pardon for a theft under 5000 charge:
“My crime took place in 2001 and it is now 2009. I fiddled around for 8 years with something that could have come off my record after 3 years.”
“It wasn’t until I got the help of Pardons Canada that this all got cleared up in 5 months.”
“I have wanted this for so long, so that I could continue my professional life and financial livelihood. I had completed university and teachers college through those years but believe it or not, this small blemish from the past has been holding me back from getting fully hired on into a contract position with any school board.”
“It was beginning to cause me depression and I almost just began to feel as though I may have to give up and look into a whole different career, one that does not involve a vulnerable screening through police services.”
“Although you guys will never truly understand the weight that has been lifted off my shoulders today, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this second chance. I should have called you a long time ago.”
