#BenLevin addresses sentencing: ‘This is a source of lasting shame to me’

“First, I am truly sorry for what I’ve done,” he began, his voice shaking. “My actions were shamefully wrong. I fell far short of my own ideals and my previous behaviour. I participated in activities that victimized children. I’ve hurt everyone I care about and I have undermined an entire career dedicated to improving public education.

“All of this is a source of lasting shame to me and that pain and remorse will remain with me for life, whatever sentence I receive.”

    Can’t be much of a shame to the esteemed Mr. Levin — his media pals have censored the story. Only the Sun media, the National Post and a few blogs are reporting on it. So few Canadians know about this case. Having powerful friends, in high places, helps him out.

    • It pays big in Canada, our political class have circled the wagons.

      But…I bet you didn’t hear about Mike Duffy in like…. 30 secs?

  • moraywatson

    Didn’t he mean to say that he spent an entire career undermining our public education system?

  • disqus_PwGxBXHn8l

    Isn’t the main point that if the guy has problems like that he should have nothing to do with sex ed curriculums? And yet … Denyse O’Leary, Ottawa

    • In Ontario it’s considered a plus.

      • Surele Surele

        high time to change it

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    Getting busted, that’s what he’s ashamed of…typical knob-gobbling gov’t parasite mentality…

    Reading Blogwrath’s excellent round up of the Levin trial, one thing stood out. Ruby insisted that the judge factor into his decision that “Levin would not fare well in prison”. Since when is this a sentencing consideration for Joe Average?!

    • Chris

      This isn’t a consideration for the average Joe because the average Joe doesn’t have intimate connections with the political party in power. As easy as it is to point fingers at the Libs this is common to all parties in power.

      Here’s a photo of Monsieur Ruby, closest to the camera, enjoying a dinner prepared for him by the Star’s Corey Mintz.

      To refer to this pedophile defender as a ‘pretentious asshole’ would be an understatement…..

    • Actually a pedo in Oshawa I belive was spared jail time just this spring because going to jail might make him suicidal

      • Martin B

        Any stats out there on how many children hang themselves or slit their wrists after being raped or molested?

      • Uncle_Waspy

        Unreal, Cat. I can recall a case out Port Hope way where the insane judge came under fire when he actually commended a pedophile for preserving the female victim’s virginity. Some of these guys are just not a part of consciousness as we know it.

    Benny Backdoor already has pedophilia insurance. He is protected by Prem. Wynnebag’s VIP_ (Very Important Paedophile) Law.It has a no fault clause for first entry..

    “All of this is a source of lasting shame to me”. I bloody well should be, you asshole!

  • He deserves the very worst punishment that the law allows. There is no excuse whatever for such behavior. The victims are paramount.

  • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

    ‘“All of this is a source of lasting shame to me and that pain and remorse will remain with me for life, whatever sentence I receive.”’

    Screw him and his fake ‘mea culpa’ routine.
    He is only sorry that he got caught.

    So in just 3 days Benny has gone from “harmless fantasy” to “shamefully wrong”. Let’s hope the judge knows that something can’t be harmless & shamefully wrong at the same time and won’t get suckered by this phony shyster.

  • Ron MacDonald

    He should be getting between 5 and 10 years in prison.

      Don’t drop the soap.
