NO PARDON FOR YOU – Funding runs out for clearing Canada’s pardon application backlog
If you’ve applied for a pardon, give it up. You’re not going to get one. Harper has abolished pardons in his no rehabilitation, once a criminal always a criminal, no forgiveness for past mistakes ideology. You can reapply at more than 4X the price for a “record suspension” but again, don’t hold your breath.
The Parole Board of Canada says it can no longer dedicate its resources to clearing a backlog of old pardon applications, leaving thousands of former offenders in legal limbo.
