Canada’s New “tough on crime” Laws In Action


 The Winnipeg Free Press (Nov 2/12) reported:

1) Florante Cemania, the father of four, has been given a "mandatory minimum" 3-year prison sentence. Based on a tip, the police found seven ounces of cocaine and $27,000 behind a ceiling tile in his garage. Apparently he was hiding it for an acquaintance - it wasn't even necessary to prove that either the money or drugs were his. He and his wife came from the Philppines in 1990 and both he and his wife had been working until both he and his wife were laid off in 2010. He had no criminal record - not even a speeding ticket.

2) Two Winnipeg men have admitted to a brutal attack around a bonfire that ended with their so-called friend being stabbed in the neck, the tip of the knife breaking off and lodging near his spine. Alcohol was a factor. Mark Woodcock and Tyler Hiebert pleaded guilty Thursday to aggravated assault. Woodcock was given 20 months in jail for his role, while Hiebert received 18 months of supervised probation.

3) A few days later, in Winnipeg,  there was a "mob" beating of an unsuspecting stranger for no apparent reason in Winnipeg. His injuries included a broken jaw, ribs and hand. One of the leaders of the this  gang violence was sentenced to 2 years in jail. Drunkenness was offered as a defense.
