Parole Board insanity

In a fit of what can only be described as judicial savagery, the National Parole Board has just denied Robert Latimer day parole. He will not be eligible to apply again for two years. "The Board was struck by the lack of insight you have developed in your seven years of incarceration," declared the Board chairperson, Kelly-Ann Speck.

Here (quoted from the links indicated) are some National Parole Board decisions for comparison:

  • In 1998 while on parole for the sexual assault of an Abbotsford woman, Dean Zimmerman was sent back to jail for severally beating his pregnant wife. In 2005, after being granted early release once again by the Canadian National Parole Board, Zimmerman sexually assaulted a 24-year-old Edmonton woman by holding her captive, tying her up and sexually assaulting her for nine hours.
  • In 1999 Trevor James Fontaine was sentenced to 5 years in prison for sexual assault and attempted murder. Out on parole four years into his sentence, Fontaine befriended Vanderhoof woman Misty Franklin. He then stabbed her in the back of the neck. The 24 year old mother of two is now a quadriplegic and is kept alive by a ventilator.
Parole is supposed to be granted on the basis of the offender's risk of re-offending. The National Parole Board has had no difficulty at all putting murderers and rapists back on our streets to kill and rape again. But when it comes to a genuinely compassionate man like Robert Latimer, who presents absolutely zero risk of re-offending, he gets a school-marmish lecture and back to the pen he goes--after seven years of hard time imposed because he loved his daughter too much to see her suffer in constant, irremediable agony.

More light needs to be shone upon the workings of the obviously dysfunctional NPB. This shameful decision, in the meantime, makes me somewhat less than proud to be a Canadian.

Why not let the Parole Board bureaucrats know how you feel? Send polite notes to:

The owner decided after the event to donate half of the proceeds back to the students.

This was zero cost because the students went to local stores and asked for either donations and gift cards
to purchase these items. The game would begin with them watching the collapse of society and the outbreak of magic around the world.
