Fundies from the conservatives strike again.

Conservatives Reintroduce Dangerous and Costly Crime Legislation

The giant bill, known as the Safe Streets and Communities Act, is made of up nine bills the Conservatives were unable to pass due to opposition in the last session of parliament.

What the bill contains :

* The Protecting Children from Sexual Predators Act (former Bill C-54), which proposes increased penalties for sexual offences against children, as well as creates two new offences aimed at conduct that could facilitate or enable the commission of a sexual offence against a child;

* The Penalties for Organized Drug Crime Act (former Bill S-10), which would target organized crime by imposing tougher sentences for the production and possession of illicit drugs for the purposes of trafficking;

* Sébastien's Law (Protecting the Public from Violent Young Offenders) (former Bill C-4), which would ensure that violent and repeat young offenders are held accountable for their actions and the protection of society is a paramount consideration in the treatment of young offenders by the justice system;

* The Ending House Arrest for Property and Other Serious Crimes by Serious and Violent Offenders Act (former Bill C-16), which would eliminate the use of conditional sentences, or house arrest, for serious and violent crimes;

* The Increasing Offender Accountability Act (former Bill C-39), which would enshrine a victim's right to participate in parole hearings and address inmate accountability, responsibility, and management under the Corrections and Conditional Release Act;

* The Eliminating Pardons for Serious Crimes Act (former Bill C-23B), which would extend the ineligibility periods for applications for a record suspension (currently called a "pardon") from three to five years for summary conviction offences and from five to ten years for indictable offences;

* The Keeping Canadians Safe (International Transfer of Offenders) Act (former Bill C-5), which would add additional criteria that the Minister of Public Safety could consider when deciding whether or not to allow the transfer of a Canadian offender back to Canada to serve their sentence;

* The Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act and related amendments to the State Immunity Act (former Bill S-7), which would allow victims of terrorism to sue perpetrators and supporters of terrorism, including listed foreign states, for loss or damage that occurred as a result of an act of terrorism committed anywhere in the world; and

* The Preventing the Trafficking, Abuse and Exploitation of Vulnerable Immigrants Act (former Bill C-56), which would authorize immigration officers to refuse work permits to vulnerable foreign nationals when it is determined that they are at risk of humiliating or degrading treatment, including sexual exploitation or human trafficking.


Doesn't matter that :

In July, Statistics Canada reported that crime rates in Canada have reached their lowest level since 1973, with homicide rates the lowest since 1966.

Eh... we need more laws!

NDP :

Comartin said, according to Justice Department statistics, just the drug section of the bill would "incarcerate between 3,000 and 5,000 more people in Canada by that one piece of legislation, which is only part of this bill."


This is sickening :

Liberal Leader Bob Rae told the press the 110-page bill will "significantly increase the prison population at the rate of $108,000 per inmate per year."

Yeah let's spend $108k per inmate per year... I mean, we have PLENTY of money to spare...

Let's build more prisons... I mean, free societies always do that right?


The drug-related portion of the legislation, known as Bill S-10 in its last incarnation, includes mandatory minimum prison sentences for growing small amounts of marijuana and would increase maximum sentences for pot from seven to 14 years.

Disgusting. Marijuana should be LEGAL.

Tory crime bill plays on victims' emotions, dad says

The so-called Safe Streets and Communities Act, unveiled Tuesday, would allow longer sentences for children as young as 14

Yeah because 14 years old kids are very dangerous... I mean there's lots of 14 years old in Canada being hardcore criminals...

Sweeping Conservative crime bill only ‘the beginning’

Armed with a majority, the Harper government is setting out to refashion Canada’s justice system with a sweeping crime bill to toughen punishments for a range of offenders, from drug dealers to sexual predators to what Justice Minister Rob Nicholson calls “out-of-control young people.”

Fascist bastards. Out of control young people? The only out of control people are scum like you trying to control everyone's lives. Control freaks bastards.

But the WORST about this bill...

The bill allows the police access to private Internet records without a warrant or active investigation

Basically, they can get all the internet records of everyone the day after it passed. Run it through a computer looking for particular websites... and if you EVER downloaded anything illegal... the police will raid you and arrest you. And since most Canadians at some point or another downloaded illegal stuff, they could raid ANYONE and put them in jail.

Start protesting in a major way? The cops pull your internet history and they are bound to find something.

Doesn't matter that it's TOTALLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL...

THIS MUST NOT PASS.

(And since I can talk to a minister of Harper's government, I'm gonna do so and do everything I can to stop this)

All of you braindeads who voted for Harper, I hope you are happy.

Well it seems like some Canadians would like Canada to be a bit more like the US it would seem!

If, as the statistics seem to show....Canada already has a record low crime rate..then why try to fix something that's not broken? Seems to me that while I can't say that all of the proposals on that list seem like a bad Idea...taken as a whole they would almost certainly do little to actually decrease crime, but would rather increase the number incarcerated and jack up costs....basically muddying up the Canadian system and making it less efficient...which of course in the long run will cause the crime rate to increase. We here in the US have more of a percentage of our citizens incarcerated than any other western country....Incarcerating more people doesn't lower the crime rate...That's pretty clear. I hope you guys don't go down the same path we've been down in the US. It doesn't work.

Sounds like corporate America wants a piece of Canada's pie. Overwhelm the prison system with prisoners while cutting funding. Things get worse and then they call for privatization because the system sucks. That seems to be how it starts. They're after roads and schools now here. Prisons are just the first step cause it's easy.
