Parole Board Launches Online Consultation on Record Suspensions

Yesterday the Parole Board of Canada launched the public consultation on record suspensions and pardons. Please take a moment to complete the survey and provide your input.

In person consultations have, strangely enough, been taking place since September (at least that’s what the website says) but I’ve submitted my request to participate anyway.

Please take a moment and submit your own survey. It only takes a few minutes and with luck, the result will be a pardon system that is better for everyone.

Here is the link to the online consultation. Please give it a look.

I am happy that the Liberals are taking a consultative approach and allowing Canadians to give their opinion on a small part of the criminal justice system that was changed under the Conservatives. Today its the waiting period for pardons, tomorrow maybe mandatory sentences. In the summer they had a consultation on the fee structure for applying for a pardon, now it’s on the waiting period. I wonder how long it will take before a decision is made.

In this country if you have a criminal record you are basically without work. Most if not all employment agencies and non profit require criminal record checks. I believe this record suspension is not fair for first time offenders to wait for example a decade to apply for a record suspension it hurts the economy and families will have no choice other than to use the government assistance programs to support their families. Doesnt make logical sense.
