Canadian prison system future

Earlier reported the Correctional Services Canada says it has no idea what mandatory minimum sentences will do to the prison system because Bill S-10 would send traffickers and producers to jail immediately.

In a way this seems to look like how the United States law is and their prisons are well over packed and they drain a lot of the tax payers dollars.

The Bill S-10 includes sending persons with 6 marijuana plants or less straight to prison as well as possession of marijuana.

If you look at the statistics in Canada on how many people smoke marijuana in Canada, you will see that if this S-10 is to go threw that a great percentage of the population could end up being in jail for possession of marijuana. There is already to many tax dollars being wasted on trying to bust grow-ops and not enough to take down meth labs and crack shacks. The bigger priority is to remove crime from the streets not to breach our human rights.

Remember before you side with bill S-10 take a look at the prison system and laws the United States has got and ask your self this question.

Who has got the bigger problem with drugs and gangs with their current laws Canada or the United states?

Government agreed to cover costs

The Canadian government agrees to cover the costs to implement the new bill. Great that sounds good, but keep in mind where the government gets its money.

Remember these few things though, the Canadian economy growth has slown down and we have just had a new tax shoved down our throats called the HST. If the government is to pay for this new drug law and bill to go threw, they are not pulling money out of thin air.

Along with the new HST in play schools and hospitals have been shut down, and there still is not enough jobs to cover the unemployment rate. And homelessness it at its all time high.

Canadian government you can cover the cost of implementing this bill all you want just do not be dipping your fingers into my pockets or any other citizens. We are getting taxed enough.

Feds pushing for new drug law

Correctional Services Canada says it has no idea what mandatory minimum sentences will do to the prison system.

But Commissioner Don Head told a Senate committee the government has agreed to cover off the costs of implementing the new bill.

The Bill S-10 would send traffickers and producers to jail immediately.

This all sounds great but lets look a little more in to this.
