The infamous hockey coach who molested both Sheldon Kennedy and Theo Fleury has been pardoned. It was revealed only yesterday, but the pardon was granted 3 years ago.

This is appalling. The Prime Minister has asked the pardon board for an explanation.

I read Fleury's book "Playing with Fire" (great book by the way).

Ditto Regs - it's completely shocking that he could be pardoned.

This has me pissed that he can get away with it. I plan on calling my local Canadian embassy tomorrow. I hope they are ready to hear my opinion. I've been googling Graham James and supposedly he is in Spain somewhere according to one article that I read. I spread the word thru my support group from the conference. That is 40+ people that have the information to go to their local Canadian embassy to voice their opinions now. I also joined the Revoke Graham James' Pardon page on FaceBook. The more people that know about this low life, the better the chance something will get done.

just got this from another source:

"Just to clarify, it was the National Parole Board, and not the government, that issued the pardon. The government is quite upset about it and has made that known and is investigating the circumstances in which this happened and is considering drafting legislation to prevent this in the future (i.e to have a much more thorough vetting of the pardon process). E.g. see

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/poli...article1523541/

So in your letters to the public safety minister or to the prime minister, be sure to encourage their work rather than just rant at them! Here's the contact page for the Public Safety Minister:

I have joined the Facebook group that is protesting this terrible miscarriage of justice. Here is my corrected post from the group's Facebook wall page:

"At least part of the reason for criminal sanction is deterrence of similar behaviors in others. Where is the justice for his many victims? This ruling tells his victims that their suffering doesn't matter. Certainly there are those more deserving of pardon than a confessed serial child molester who has ruined multiple young lives through an ongoing and egregious abuse of the public trust. How will this pardon deter others???"

Hopefully there won't be another group of young victims that could have been prevented. There is a Canadian Consulate office in Denver (and in many major US cities), and I will certainly write in protest of this uncaring action on the part of the Canadian Parole Board. Anyone who hasn't yet joined the Graham James Facebook group I would encourage you to do so, to show solidarity to the many victims of this monster, and in the hope that paroles of serial child molesters in Canada might be considered much more carefully in the future.

Doesn't Canada realize that pedophiles can't be cured? What is the Parole Board thinking, by issuing so many pardons, not just to James but hundreds of others of convicted pedophiles?

Does anyone know if the US has a similarly soft policy re: pardons for pedophiles?
