Bill C-23 Proposing Suspension of Criminal Records in Lieu of Pardons

record suspensions
by wallyg

Erasing a criminal record in Canada may become tougher with the drafting and introduction of a new Act into Parliament. Bill C-23, titled “Eliminating Pardons for Serious Crimes Act” is the proposed amendment to the Criminal Records Act dealing with pardons in Canada. Serious criminals won’t be the only ones affected however; all others will have the waiting period doubled from five years to ten for indictable offenses, and increased from three years to five years for misdemeanors. There is also a three strikes clause which will make anyone with three indictable offenses ineligible for a “record suspension”, the new moniker for “pardon” used in the bill.

Record suspension is a term devised to express the government’s stance of not wanting to be in the business of pardoning, forgiving, or even relieving anyone convicted of any level of criminal offense. The bill has the aim of getting tough on crime but it also seems to be punishing people who are trying to put an isolated mistake behind them and live as productive citizens once more. Having a criminal record longer leaves an offender vulnerable to further discrimination in the job market and makes travel to other countries more difficult. In effect they are constantly being punished after serving their sentences so one might argue that this is contrary to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Section 11(h) that states that once you are convicted and punished for a crime, you are not to be punished for it again. The place to get tough is in the courtroom.

The government doesn’t present any reasoning for the waiting period extension backed by statistics showing such a necessity. At the current waiting periods, 96% of the 400,000 people given pardons in Canada have not re-offended so the motive for demanding much longer waiting periods is not aimed at any weakness in the system. Making them wait longer to live full productive lives is surely a negative factor in reducing crime.

On the positive side, Bill C-23 allows the National Parole Board to consider a number of factors when determining whether to order a record suspension. The Board may consider the nature, gravity, and duration of the offense. They may also consider the circumstances surrounding the commission of the offense. They may also weigh information relating to the applicant’s criminal history. These new rules should give a broader spectrum on which to base decisions.

Getting a pardon in Canada should be done right away by those who are eligible in order to avoid longer waiting periods. Getting a record suspension doesn’t sound as cleansing and there will be the necessity by the applicant to prove to the Board that it would provide him with a measurable benefit and sustain his rehabilitation in society as a law-abiding citizen. The Board would also have the ability to make any inquiries to determine whether the ordering of a record suspension would bring the administration of justice into disrepute. This would eliminate some loopholes that seem to let serious offenders slip by.

The longer waiting periods remain inexplicable; it’s a case of fixing something that’s not broken and could lead to higher crime rates when frustrated ex-offenders can’t find work after several years of good behavior and decide to make money in an illegal fashion. The effort could be better spent focusing on proper sentencing and the swift and effective rehabilitation of those who don’t intend to commit crimes anymore.

**** If you DMV people wanted to be in the medical career, you should have went to college, got a degree and made something of yourselves. Just when I was going to do everyone a favor here by removing this vid, I received a driver’s record that violated the HIPPA Laws in which NJ MVC communicated to the public about a specific drivers medical information info not returned-license to DMV when in fact you did received it last April. Come to think of it now, I’m glad you don’t work for the medical profession. Keep in mind that not all of my MVC recordings are posted **** The NJ MVC (DMV) are singling and discriminating drivers out, claiming (without any supporting facts) that they are not physically & medically able to driver a motor vehicle and by doing so, Blackmailing their driving status, that if drivers do not give up every private medical detail about themselves, such as medications, psychiatric data and etc., to make public on their driving record, that the DMV will SUSPEND their drivers license! None of these drivers that are being singled out have any medical issues that would impair their driving a motor vehicle on public road and are not any different then those who pay their DL renewals on time. So what caused all of these threatening acts the NJ MVC made?? Maybe it was my right of “Freedom Of Speech” when I uploaded the NJ MVC pathetic lies without their consent two months ago. What next (?), Real ID ACT Cards being suspened by MVC employees, like John & Gary

Question by : Does your school record of all the suspensions really follow you?
i got suspended once in high school my senior year for being under the influence does it really follow you through out your life? is it a conviction? Is it on my criminal record?

Best answer:

Answer by derek
Are you serious??! No it ain’t a conviction and no you won’t have a criminal record. I was suspended constantly, even expelled my junior year, never had a problem goin to college. All that permanent record stuff is bs.

    The only way someone would be sent these forms is for a few reasons.
    Too many accidents. Some reports that you are unable to drive. Mostly a family member.
    Social Security states that you are somewhat disabled and sends it to the DMV (now MVC)

    My ex-brother-in-law use to work for DMV, Allstate, and an attorney.
    Do not fill out the forms, then NJ DMV can revoke or suspend the Licence.
    Can go get it appealed.
    NJ says driving is a privilege not a right.

    I don’t know? After all said and done, my Attorney hands me a Police Report that notes an MVC Employee reported seeing me walk and video record his brother on YouTube (a MVC employee as well) who was on the job collecting my Birth Certificate, SSN Card Etc…, to satisfy and stop my pervious false DL suspension. It turns out, the same MVC employee reporting this to police, reported I was in a wheelchair to the Medical Review Department and then I received another DL suspension.

    Did you win your case?

  • loupag007:

    Invasion of your privacy?. Ever think it was an invasion of the peoples privacy that your recording with your dumb gadgets? Get a life douchiebag. Maybe a retard that spends his free time recording conversations with public servents doesn’t deserve a driver license. Secret consipircy, huh? What else, the U.S. is responsible for 9/11 right?

  • soupnmusic:

    So what? DMV secretly lied on public records and I secretly recorded them doing it. Now they say I am not physically & medically able to drive?
    Do you see the pattern here? They are pissed off at me for uploading their BS lies and now they are using the system for their personal revenge.

  • dependableme:

    ow, another whopper of vid. This video just shows you as a belligerent fool. I’m curious, did you ask your attorney “if secretly recording and posting is legal?”

  • Quizzard:

    hahahaha. No, your school record follows you throughout your school life, and that’s where it ends.

  • TrekkerScout:

    Once you are out of high school, nobody cares about any suspensions you have had. The only thing that anyone will be looking at is your school transcript showing the classes you took and the grades you received. All other information in your school records is for official school use only and cannot be divulged without your consent or a court order.
