Life sentences for repeat pedophiles
Petition Background (Preamble):
Among sexual offenders:
27.9 per cent committed "mixed" offences.
25. 2 per cent committed sexual assault.
21 per cent committed pedophilia.
6.2 per cent committed incest.
4.6 per cent committed "other offences."

What can be done? For starters, sentences that fit the crime. How can theft and drug charges carry more severe punishments than an adult taking the innocence of a poor child and scarring them for life?
What do I want? It is quite simple. I want the Supreme Court of Canada to review the sentencing standards for child sex crimes and make the necessary changes to ensure proper punishments are being handed down.
There is something very wrong when the average sentence for a pedophile is between 2 - 4 years yet our neighbours to the south hand down life sentences for such crimes.
I want repeat offenders to automatically receive a life sentence to ensure our children are kept safe from these incurable perpetrators.
