Each day we receive thank you letters from people we helped to obtain a Canada Pardon. The sense of relief that people have once they obtain a Pardon is incredible as they have been haunted by the stigma of having a criminal record in the past.
Here is a recent letter that really expresses the great feeling of being free from having a criminal record once a Canada Pardon is granted:
“I would like to thank Pardons Canada for giving me the opportunity to clear my name and start a clean slate.”
“I lost a lot of good opportunities because of having a criminal record. Until you get a criminal record, you do not realize the boundaries and restrictions that you are surrounded by. You feel a sense of restraint and you lose a piece of innocence.”
“I have learned a lot since I received a criminal record and stress to people the freedom they will lose if they choose to make poor choices.”
“Having a criminal record makes you feel that people think of you differently as if you are a “bad” person and I did not want people to look at me in that way.”
“To be freed of my criminal record is an accomplishment. It feels extremely good that I do not have to worry anymore. I do not have to be reminded of mistakes I have made in my past when I was young and lacked good judgement.”
“Even though something negative happens in life, you should always find a positive and use that to help you grown and become a better person. Now when my daughter is older, I will be able to take her to Disney without any worries.”
