We are very fortunate to live in a country that gives its citizens a second chance in life.
The criminal justice system in Canada is set up to give punishment but also redemption, in the case of a Canada Pardon.
There has recently been a lot of media attention on a Pardon granted to a Sex Offender in 2007. As always there are many sides to a story and there are concerns that certain crimes should not merit a Pardon.
The following article in the Globe and Mail entitled “Sex Offenders Pardoned Almost As Often As Other Criminals” highlights the recent issue:
Ultimately, the government (elected by the people) will decide whether the current system is fair or needs to be changed in order to limit access to Pardons for certain crimes.
In the meantime, each week we help hundreds of Canadians who are seeking to obtain a Pardon in order to move forward with their lives in a positive way.
