Canada Needs To Bring Back The Death Penalty

Our justice system has become shockingly weak when it comes to the most brutal and vicious crimes. It’s time for a big change in the other direction.

There is an increasingly disturbing move to both ‘defund the police,’ and ‘abolish prisons.’

This is an outgrowth of what the left has been pushing for a long-time: The idea that prisons and the justice system exist only to ‘rehabilitate’ prisoners and return them to society.

However, this misses the traditional, and most important point of having police, having a justice system, and having prisons:

To keep dangerous people away from law-abiding citizens.

That’s it really.

Rehabilitation may be nice, but it’s not always possible. And when rehabilitation fails, regular law-abiding people are the victims.

Prisons aren’t meant to ‘fix people,’ they are meant to protect everyone outside of prison from those inside prison.

Simply put, if a brutal killer is in jail, they aren’t in our streets and communities, thus keeping us safe.

However, this common-sense, traditional approach is increasingly undermined, with the left pushing the system more and more towards so-called ‘compassion,’ which really means compassion for criminals and ruthlessness towards victims.

That’s why it’s time for the pendulum to swing in the total opposite direction.

It’s time for Conservatives to push for the return of the death penalty.

For too long, the left has dominated the discussion when it comes to crime, the justice system, and prisons. And we are seeing the consequences.

Crime is starting to rise again, vicious criminals get a slap on the wrist for event the most heinous crimes, and good, law-abiding people are repeatedly victimized because the system allows horrible criminals to get out of jail quickly, or even avoid jail, unleashing them among the rest of us.

Pushing for the return of the death penalty resets the conversation, and makes clear how big the stakes are.

And it has widespread support.

Canada Death Penalty Poll

A Research Co. poll from March 2020, shows that 51% of Canadians support the death penalty for murder convictions.

This is something Canadians want to see brought back.

Most Canadians have a traditionalist view of crime and the justice system: Prisons are to protect law-abiding people from criminals, and heinous crimes should have severe punishments.

As the supposedly ‘conservative’ party, the Conservatives need to get on side with public opinion, get tougher on crime, and push to bring back the death penalty.

Our country needs our justice system to stop protecting criminals, and start protecting the rest of us.

The time spent in jail is completely unproductive. Sitting around playing cards or watching TV is useless. The Prince Albert Pen used to have a prison farm where inmates worked. Husbandry, agriculture, dedication, basic vet skills, trades like welding, butchering, mechanics and bookkeeping. It was a good farm that provided food for the jail and some outside income. It turned around the lives of a lot of inmates who had no education or skills. It was stopped because some bleeding heart female from Winnipeg complained it was abuse to have inmates work. We gave up the death penalty in exchange… Read more »


I agree in principle, but due to the flaws in our justice system, and because it runs more on money than truth, the death penalty would need to be reserved for only those cases where guilt is beyond any shadow of doubt. But there are plenty of other reforms needed: a life sentence should mean life, not a few years and then parole; parole, suspended sentences, and conditional discharges should be eliminated; harming criminals in defense of self or property should not result in charges. And the RCMP need a powerful reminder that their job is to enforce the law,… Read more »

No no no!!! to the death penalty

Richard Courtemanche

Got to enforce the law first although the death penalty would be fitting certain crimes.

Major Tom

It was on PM Pierre Trudeau’s watch that capital punishment, corporal punishment and the decriminalization of sodomy occurred……all UN agendas and all forced upon Canadians without a public referendum…..
