Don’t be fooled, this is about the drug war and nothing else

Re: “Tories propose tighter parole rules” from CBC News.

Read article.

The federal government said Monday it will introduce legislation to crack down on early parole for non-violent offenders, a move it says will augment proposed tougher sentences for white-collar criminals.

The new legislation will change existing laws that allow non-violent criminals convicted of a first offence to be eligible for early parole after serving just one-sixth of their sentences and full parole after serving one-third of their sentences, said Minister of Public Safety Peter Van Loan at a press conference in Montreal.

He said under the current laws, criminals such as fraudsters and drug dealers are routinely granted parole in these circumstances, unless the parole board believes the parolees might commit violent crimes.

Don’t believe for a second this has anything to do with white collar crime. This is about ramping up the drug war in Canada, pure and simple. When are we going to get our country back and, when we do, what will it look like?

    Keep following the lead of your disgraceful neighbor to the south and you will eventually destroy your country and lose your civil rights and freedoms just like we Americans have. The correct course to take for any nation wishing to improve itself and make life better for its citizens is to do exactly the opposite of everything you see the USA doing. And one more thing: Would you please apprehend and prosecute international war criminals when they visit your country so you don’t become complicit in the cover-up of their crimes as Obama has. You can arrest him too when he visits as he is actively engaged in providing safe refuge for America’s war criminals and sheltering them from investigation and prosecution.

    Nothing can be done about the criminal gangs in our cities until we deal with the criminal gangs that are in Ottawa. It used to be the case that our vote counted and we could always vote for the other party but that is no longer the case. Comrade Lenin would’ve simply asked “What Is To Be Done”.
