In a recent episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Ezra discussed with Edmonton Sun columnist Lorne Gunter how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s ‘bail reform’ policies have resulted in a surge of violent attacks across the country. Gunter explained why these policies are ineffective in reducing crime.
According to Gunter, these policies were based on the advice of experts who believed that the best way to stop crime is to quickly reintegrate potential criminals back into society. However, the reality is that by releasing individuals with a proven likelihood of committing crimes, they are being released into the general population, increasing the risk of more criminal activities.
Ezra also raised concern about the lenient sentences often given by ‘woke’ judges to minority offenders, particularly indigenous criminals. He highlighted the alarming fact that most women who are victims of violent assault or murder are often attacked by individuals they already knew, such as family members or boyfriends. Bail processes are made easier and sentences are more lenient, especially in cases involving indigenous individuals. This leniency may be seen as progressive and healing, but it ultimately puts the violent offenders back into the same environment where they previously attacked their victims, putting those victims at further risk.
Gunter provided additional insight into the issue, sharing his research findings on the bail and parole system. Since the liberals have come into power, the percentage of gun crimes has doubled. This increase is not due to convictions for administrative violations, such as unsafe storage or license renewals, but rather crimes involving the use of firearms to commit offenses. Despite the implementation of assault weapons and handgun bans, along with other restrictions on law-abiding gun owners, the problem lies with individuals who have a history of violence. These individuals are more likely to be out on the streets, while ordinary citizens are stripped of their right to bear arms.
It is evident that Trudeau’s bail reform policies are failing to address the rising crime rates and protect the public. Instead, these policies have inadvertently released potential offenders back into society and increased the risk to innocent individuals. Furthermore, lenient sentences based on identity politics further endanger the lives of victims, particularly indigenous women. The focus should be on ensuring the safety of the general population, rather than prioritizing misguided notions of progressiveness.
In conclusion, Trudeau’s bail reform policies have had disastrous consequences, leading to a surge in violent attacks nationwide. It is imperative that the government reevaluates these policies and implements effective measures to ensure the safety of all Canadians.
