The Ontario Court of Appeals has made a landmark decision, ruling that cultural norms cannot be used to justify lighter prison sentences.

    Can someone then explain why we have these “sentencing/healing circles”?

    • Watchman

      To stick it to the white man by getting reduced sentences? Can’t think of anything else at this time.

        Too many aboriginal males were going to jail for raping or killing aboriginal females so as not to be Wacisst we allow them to get off easy.

  • Liberal Progressive

    But some people from some cultures just aren’t of the mental capability to understand English Common Law and so need to have their own sentences and justice systems.

    Not to accept this is racist or Islamophobic!

    • J. C.

      Which is exactly why multiculturalism must end!

    Since Toronto is now over 50% non-Canadian background and a majority non-white city. Pretty soon there won’t be any reason to have laws in Toronto because 90% will be exempt because they came from 15th century hell holes and we must not hold them to the same moral as the human that walk erect .

    Thank goodness there are no Inca’s or Aztek’s in Canada – or we’d have someone accused or ripping out a human heart claiming that “according to their religion it’s normal and they didn’t know it wasn’t legal”.
