I just could not beleive it when I read it.What is wrong ewith our syste or should I say who in the hell place these people in to make such stupid decesions dont they respect our kids and that canadians do not aprove of such of behavior and no one would aprove of even pardon such low life after such a short period or even ever. This as to stop ro lets think before we vote next time around.

NOOOOOOO!!!! What are they thinking????

It's got to be taken into context with everything revealed by the victims. No pardon based on all the facts which came out. Seems to be a double standard. If a female were abused as such, it would be simply outrageous to even think of the word pardon. Why the double standard?.

Put all the drunk drivers in jail for life and make the sexual predators babysit them

Thanx to the parole board for doing the right thing.NOT. We deport people who are upstanding citizens but they get bogged down in paperwork..THEY must be punished. Now we have a sexual pervert who gets rewarded by our parole board.I think we have some people on the board with intelligence issues. I just love the message this sends to our children. What are we a bunch of pimps in Canada??? Disgusting...only in Canada. Harpers gov't has got to go.

Unless the facts that convicted him have changed pardoning him makes a mockery of the trial process. Either those convicting him were wrong or those pardoning him are.

I normally disagree with the Conservatives over...well, everything...but in this case I agree with them. The Parole Board is flawed to say the least (since I know that comments are moderated I choose flawed over other words). What in blazes were they thinking??? Totally unacceptable.

People get pardons all the time so they can travel abroad for work or other reasons. Ever see the commercials on TV? Practically anyone can apply for one.

James has a excellent lawyer who secured him a pardon because the NPB has granted them to similar, but less known, criminals in the past. Obviously they knew the public would react this way, so they kept it a secret.

Curious that the government didn't "know" about this before. Of course, leave it to the politicians to come to the rescue and make everything right. They never miss an opportunity to look like the good guy.
