Earlier, I wrote about Eric Brazeau’s upcoming trial and I said he had already served more time in jail than was possible for the ‘crime’ he had committed.
I was wrong!
I did not expect the judge would not only sentence him to double what the prosecution was seeking, but also that the judge would not apply the usual 2.5 to 1 credit for time served pre-trial, as is customary in Canada…
Oh, how naive I feel…
So, let me be the first to say:
One of the most distrusted professions in Canada is ‘lawyers’.
The other one is ‘politicians’.
Yet our judges are ‘patronage appointments’ of lawyers by their politician buddies.
Ever wonder what is wrong with our judicial system?
I just can’t put my finger on it….
