  1. Canada needs to adopt a “three strikes” policy like they have in the USA. These lowlife snakes from the south would be getting life sentences instead of a stern lecture and put back on the streets.

    Our justice system is a travesty. What other country gives you fifty bail violation warnings, seldom actually set costs for bail nor collects costs for bail when bail is breached? This “rubber stamp” law bullshit has gone on for far too long.

    The reason criminals love Dumpster Bay is for easy welfare and even easier judges and JPs.
