Justin Trudeau’s Liberals have failed to respond to a Supreme Court decision that struck down a common-sense law that gave judges the discretion to impose multiple parole ineligibility periods for serial and mass murderers, to take into account each life lost.
As a result, serial and mass murderers can apply for parole each year for the rest of their life after serving only twenty-five years in prison.
This is completely unjust.
It means that the families of murder victims will be re-victimized again and again enduring the trauma of parole hearings year after year.
Bill S-281 is the least we can do to help alleviate the suffering of families of victims, and to hold some of Canada’s most heinous criminals accountable by putting an end to annual parole hearings.
