    You are absolutely correct Mike. The justice system is so obsessed with ensuring guilty parties do not have their rights infringed upon that the victim is re-victimized.

    unreal! kill your’e spouse, and free again within a week. ok, just don’t drink, go to bed at 8 o’clock and you are free to go. so hard to believe!!
    it is becoming a very scary world.

    Publisher: Mike, Pat, Kathleen -in our free society, our legal system – a person (male or female) is not guilty of a criminal offence until that is proven in a court of law.

    I cannot agree more the present Canadian Justice system sponsored by the Conservative Party, the Liberal Party and the Old Democrats – is biased AGAINST the victim, it is also supportive of a lawyer based system where the most delays mean larger fees and in most cases at the total expense of taxpayers. There should be more public SHAMING.

    Judges should not be lawyers – but the system as designed almost insures injustice.

    Thank you judge. All the ladies of Osoyoos can sleep safely in their beds tonight then. I’m sure all the victims of spousal abuse will cheer and bang their pots and pans tonight in recognition of our wonderful justice system.
