Letter: No faith in the justice system

Just a couple of thoughts as to why Canada is such a great place to live

No faith in the justice system

Just a couple of thoughts as to why Canada is such a great place to live, especially for some.

We have a Prime Minister who welcomes all unwanted illegal people entering from America to Canada after being out foxed by the American President Trump.

In Canada, a person may cut off the head of an innocent young male passenger while riding a bus. After a few short years the assailant was given day passes as he was deemed to be no danger to the public.

Another creep murdered his own three children and did some time in a mental institution before a judge concluded the murderer was no threat to the public.

Now we have another young man that carried out a plan to kill his own mother and grandmother. This individual was recently turned down at this point in time from re-entering society.

A Canadian born teenager apparently committed treason after being held responsible for the death of an American soldier and injuring another. The Canadian government paid $10.5 million for the treatment he received while in an American prison.

A retired RCMP officer shoots his common-law wife in head and continues to deny his guilt, but is still allowed to stress out the deceased’s family.

Now we have a sleazy senator seeking almost a million dollars after being acquitted of 31 charges. Can you imagine that? Not one charge stuck and it’s back wallowing at the trough.

Another senator was found to have had sex with an underage girl and resigned before getting the boot so he could collect his pension of $24,500 per year.

This short list is a tiny part of one that would reach the moon and back.

Any judge, lawyer, politician that supports such horror should take what they consider murderers at low risk to re-offend into their home while rehabilitation continues. There has never been, and never will be, faith in this so called shameful Canadian justice system or the political arena where Canadians could be proud dancing to the same hit tune

Until horror hits the families of the whose who they will never feel the lifetime of pain delivered by another imperfect human who may think differently if horror struck his or her loved ones.
