YOUTH CRIMINAL JUSTICE ACT... DEC 15TH,2013


YOUTH CRIMINAL JUSTICE ACT... DEC 15TH,2013
By
JAMES BREDIN

The names of young criminals can't be published so you can’t condemn,
In a Canadian neighbourhood, this could mean all kinds of mayhem,
But politicians thought the Youth Criminal Justice Act was great,
Lots of politically correct ideas and not much public debate.


A symptom of the influence of our aristocrats at the time,
Add that to the already soft court system - easy on crime,
Then our appointed Supreme Court banned euthanasia forever,
No discussion, no debate and they all thought it was quite clever.


We need death-with-dignity and binding-referendums for all,
Sanity in the judicial system so we don’t have to crawl,
Not pompous politically correct activists with statistics,
Where ordinary folk without referendums are skeptics.
