Not All Criminal Records Are Qualified For Pardon in Canada

A lot of people have an erroneous belief that everyone can obtain a pardon for any criminal wrongdoing and that there are no systems in place to keep the public from the most serious lawbreakers after they have obtained a pardon. It couldn’t be farther from the truth. The great bulk of pardon applicants have minor felonies from 10, 20, 30, at times even 40 years ago; the most common of these crimes include minor thefts, DUIs and the like. The simple reality is that individuals make slip-ups. As a matter of fact, at any particular time, as many as three million Canadians have a criminal file.

Canada pardon hopefuls must undergo a harsh screening process. Prior to a person can even be considered for the pardon, and they must establish that they have been a good national and have stayed crime-free for no less than 5 years. Likewise, pardon applicants cannot have been the subject of a law enforcement investigation or apprehension during the last five years. Even traffic violations can make a pardon application subject to a suggestion to decline by the Board when their application is under review. There are also several restrictions imposed on pardons. In any case, only those truly justifiable of having their criminal record expunged will in due course receive a pardon. In point of fact, of the 350,000 Canadians that have received pardons in 1970, approximately 97 percent of these are still in force, demonstrating that the vast majority of pardon recipients stay crime-free in the community.

As regards grave offences, not every single one can be pardoned. Any person found guilty of murder will never become qualified for a Federal pardon. In order to be qualified, you must fulfill your sentence(s) and then stay crime free and of good behaviour for the appropriate eligibility period. Since individuals with murder convictions are on life parole, they are under no circumstances considered to have finished their prison term. Those convicted of murder may request a Royal Prerogative of Mercy, but these are not often given, only 2 having been awarded from 2007 through 2008. Similarly, anyone designated as a risky offender will certainly not become eligible to be considered for a pardon, ensuring the public is not put in danger by the most dangerous members at large.

Beyond a doubt, the most debatable issue of the Canada criminal pardon system is how to deal with criminal records of a sexual temperament. Pardons are accessible for past sex lawbreakers; nonetheless, they also come with meaningful limits. Any person who obtains a pardon for a sexual offence will have their record held separate and apart from normal criminal record systems such as the Canadian Police Information System; in spite of this, their name will stay marked in a special database. In the event that they apply for work or volunteer position involving susceptible people, generally defined as youth, elderly, the mentally infirm, or anyone otherwise physically or mentally susceptible, they will have to go through a vulnerable sector search, which will expose the flag.

Question by Woody Woodburn: What do you think of President George W. Bush after giving pardons to convicted criminals, allowing them free?
President George W. Bush pardoned convicted criminals, setting them free to once again be within society! At the same time, the president says “I will not bailout the automakers, nor save the jobs of over 240,000 working Americans employed by the Big Three in one way or another, is this fair? Law abiding working Americans “Get stiffed”, while criminals who have been incarcerated at taxpayers expense, get rewarded with pardons! Is something not right here or is this nations political train and common sense that far off the track and nothing else should be expected in 2008? What do you say?
Most answers pointed to Bill Clinton’s pardon’s….that was not the question! By your account Bill Clinton is a liberal nut! George W. Bush is a conservative genius! You expected those kind of pardons from the Clintons, but I asked you what you thought of conservative George W. Bush when he follows Bill Clinton”s actions……that you condemned, but upheld when George W. Bush done it! I simply asked what you thought of Bush giving pardons, allowing criminals to go free! Now I will ask you what you thought of Bill Clinton giving pardons to criminals allowing them to go free? Oh that’s right, you already answered that question before I even asked it, instead of answering the question pertaining to George W. Bush! I think George W. Bush did a great job pardoning those criminals and Bill Clinton did a lousy job of pardoning criminals! Course that is just my opinion! Have a nice day!

Seventeen-year-old Nicole dreams of spending the rest of her life with her boyfriend Nate. So when she finds herself on her way to Paris to study abroad without him, she’s less than thrilled. Paris is filled with cars that move at the speed of light, edible snails, and a language that Nicole can’t speak or read. Worst of all, Nicole feels lost without Nate. She’s not sure she’s capable of finding joie de vivre on her own, but with the help of some new friends—and a certain handsome Fre

  • Princess K:

    I am glad he pardoned those people. One guy was in the can for unlawfully using a phone for phucks sake…I say he should pardon MANY MORE including the Two boarder agents before he leaves office.

  • smsmith500:

    I have read the list of pardoned criminals, all white collar, none violent. and no contributors to his library fund. So different from the terrorists pardoned by Clinton or the money man who’s wife “contributed” Clinton’s library. And did you complain about this when Clinton pardoned over twice as many?

  • sammy:

    Ya i know…one of them was a mom who stole food stamps….probably cause her kids were hungry…..why dont you track her down and and stone her….that will make you feel better….

    give some people a 2nd chance…..stop being such a hater….

  • Brianne:

    You evidently don’t know to much about this as every president leaving office pardon a certain amount. I just looked it up and they said Clinton pardoned 140 but I think the number was 84 including a senator who had 12 accounts of child molestation against him.

  • Govamint mewl:

    If he pardoned morning, noon and night from here til 1-19, then he still couldn’t catch Clinton and probably not the poor caliber of people who Clinton pardoned. So let go of your hate, it’s all right. Please try not to be the same way for the next president who is Republican, say in 2012.

  • ♥ Mel:

    Check out Clinton’s list. He broke all records of pardons.

    Presidents do have that right.

  • Roll_Tide!:

    The President has pardoned fewer people than Clinton did. It is his right under the constitution and each case is evaluated separately.

    I could care less about the US auto makers. It is a free market, why should tax payers pay excessive union salaries and pay company’s to stay in business when they do not provide a product of quality or that many Americans want? The fact is Henry Ford when he started the Ford Motor company tried to mass produce an affordable product. Now all they produce is overpriced junk.

    I have a friend that complained about a “rattle” in the door of his brand new GM. After 11 (eleven) returns to the dealership, One Mechanic said “The heck with it, I am going to tear this door apart till I find the problem or we can order a new one, He found the problem, a coke can stuck in the empty space between the door and window. Some “union” guy stuck it there to be funny.

  • GoneGreen:

    This question is still way to early…wait 7 weeks and ask again because he is just getting warmed up.

  • Proud to be APBT:

    Let’s be honest here, former President Clinton pardoned more people in his last two months than any other President in history. Including personal friends who were involved in the Whitewater scandal that surrounded Hillary Clinton.

    Know your facts.

  • poolplayer:

    Presidential pardons are not all that unusual. Perhaps you should compare Pres. Bush pardons to Bill Clinton’s. Or almost any other list of Presidential pardons.
    Don’t really see why you are trying to compare pardons to Auto bailout. Two completely separate issues.

  • Wildroze:

    Every President does this, I just hope he pardons the Border Patrol agents that have no business being in jail in the first place.

  • Matao D:

    Ok first off admit that no matter what Bush did you liberals would be criticizing him for it reguardless. Everyone knows that your party doesn’t stand for anything, it just fights against everything the Republicans believe.
    Ok heres a little hypocracy in your very own logic. Why, you ask would, Bush pardon people convicted of LOW LEVEL CRIMES (bet you didn’t take the time to read that one, did you?) and not want to throw money at three companies that spent the last two decades not only making inferior cars to imported ones, but also made very unwise business decisions. Its the same as giving welfare money to people who drop out of highschool and want to live off the government nipple. So basically you’re saying that is that you want people to be held responsible for their actions (those criminals convicted of having weed) yet dont want people to be held responsible for their actions (people who screw up their lives)?
    Why don’t you grow up and join a party that actually stands for something?

  • SinisterMatt:

    I hate to break it to you, but that is a common tactic of outgoing presidents. They always pardon people last minute. Even Clinton did it, and one of them was a heavy contributor to his presidential library.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if Bush does it, and it wouldn’t surprise me also if Obama does it in 4 (or 8) years.

    Grab a crepe, and explore the city of light alongside Nicole!, February 22, 2007
    Erika Sorocco (Southern California, USA) –

    This review is from: Pardon My French (S.A.S.S.) (Paperback)

    While many teenagers would do anything to leave their small hometowns, and get away from their parents for a semester, seventeen-year-old Nicole Larson is stricken with feeling the complete opposite. Instead of going to Paris for the semester, she would do absolutely anything to stay within the confines of Peabody Corner, Maryland, ringing in the first day of senior year with her three best friends Zara, Patrice, and Annie; and planning what she’ll wear to Homecoming with her boyfriend of two years, Nate. But, alas, Nicole’s parents are put-off by her constant discussion of how things will be once she and Nate get married, and can’t help but feel that she’s selling herself short by deciding to follow Nate to whatever college he decides to attend. Not only that, they’re sick of seeing their daughter follow the lead of her friends, and want to see her break free from their control, and find her inner self. So, they force her to enroll in the S.A.S.S. (Students Across the Seven Seas) Study Abroad Program, which is how she finds herself smack dab in the middle of Paris, where she can’t speak the language, and is forced to reside with an American family named the Smith’s. The Smith’s are perfectly nice people, of course, but their four children…well, their constant screaming leaves much to be desired. Nicole can’t stand Paris almost instantly. The food looks creepy – there’s no way she’ll ever eat a snail – and the cars move way too fast. And the metro is more confusing than anything she’s ever encountered in her life. But, as Nicole begins attending Parisian school, and learning more about the culture and the atmosphere of Paris, along with her new friend, a Swedish girl named Annike, Nicole’s Parisian perspective begins to change. Suddenly, she isn’t so creeped out by all things France, and begins to embrace the culture, as if it were her own. And, with a few sightseeing tours from the Smith’s manny (male nanny), Luc, Nicole finds herself actually enjoying the Parisian life. However, when she learns that Nate isn’t missing her as much as she expected, Nicole begins contemplating whether cutting her trip to Paris short, and returning to the States would be a better idea than breathing in more of the sights with her newfound friends.

    In recent months, I have fallen in love with the idea of sitting in outdoor cafes in Paris, sipping cafe au lait, and munching on croissants, and have even begun embracing the works of various artists who display these types of scenes in their paintings. However, I realized that I knew very little about Paris, aside from the Eiffel Tower, and various other landmarks. So I was ecstatic to stumble upon an S.A.S.S. novel that took place in the city of lights. Cathy Hapka does a wonderful job of describing the nervousness that one feels when stepping out of their comfort zone, and being forced to take on an entire new culture – including language, to food, and even transportation! Hapka’s character development for Nicole is wonderful. The way she brings Nicole more and more out of her shell throughout PARDON MY FRENCH, giving her the chance to become more confident with herself, and make her own decisions is truly uplifting; while her ability to really make Nicole realize the error of her ways back home is interesting to delve into. While Nicole is a fabulous character, it is her Swedish friend, Annike, who really claims the spotlight in my eyes. While Annike is not an extremely large character in PARDON MY FRENCH, her presence really puts all eyes on her. Her positive outlook on everything surrounding her – from the Nutella and banana crepes she savors, to the Parisian museums – really makes the reader feel more positive about their own surroundings. She is so jovial, and kind, and just really sparkles as a character from the moment she’s introduced. In fact, I hope that, someday, Annike is the star of her own spin-off S.A.S.S. novel, because I’d love to learn more about her. Grab a crepe, and explore the city of light alongside Nicole!

    The Unknown Journey, July 5, 2006
    Love2Read “Sammi” (Fairfax, VA, USA) –

    This review is from: Pardon My French (S.A.S.S.) (Paperback)

    If you are the type of person who loves to travel, this book is for you. Although this novel can be taken to merely discuss Nicole’s journey to France, her emotional journey is also an important one, and rightfully shows the struggles of today’s exchange students – along with the romance they meet along the way! In France, she is forced to experience new, unknown French ways instead of being a sheltered teenager. For example, she must learn to navigate around the French metro.

    On a romantic level, this novel was a bit cliche for me. She falls in love with a French guy – why does this always happen in every exchange novel/movie?!?! The romance did add a little fun to the book, however, so I would recommend this book as a great read, especially if you like to be exposed to different cultures. There are also other books in the S.A.S.S. series, so after you read this one, go for them!!

    Another Good S.A.S.S. Book…, June 29, 2006
    TybaltTino “Tino” (Columbia, SC USA) –

    This review is from: Pardon My French (S.A.S.S.) (Paperback)

    I really enjoyed this enstallment in the S.A.S.S. series.

    Nicole is aboslutely against going to France to study abroad. She has friends, a great boyfriend, and American stuff to do. And to top it all off, the family she stays with is a little on the crazy side. And their ‘babysitter’, Luc, is annoyingly adorable. Nicole just wants to be back at home. But when she finally relaxes a little and learns to enjoy herself while studying in France, Nicole finds that her stay was a life-changing experience.

    I didn’t flip the pages furiously or read this one in a day, but it was a cute little book that I enjoyed reading. A good read if you too wish to study abroad and find love along the way. 🙂
