With the rise of violent crime in Canada something needs to be done to ensure these hyper-violent criminals are not released to repeat their crimes. The death penalty is a very effective and permanent deterrent. With our current justice system criminals like Paul Bernardo can be parolled. Karla Homolka will be free as early as next year. This petition will be forwarded to Prime Minister Paul Martin on July 1, 2005 for his action. It is up to concerned, law abiding Canadian citizens to see that he gets the message; we will not tolerate violent crimes with little or no punishment.
