Parole for Murder May Disappear

The Harper govenment is continuing its tough on crime stance with a move to put more individuals convicted of murder behind bars with no chance of parole.  The government is introducing legislation  that would mean life with no chance of parole for "especially brutal" first-degree murders, those who kill police or prison guards and those who kill during a sex assault, kidnapping or an act of terrorism. Prisoners could petition cabinet for release after 35 years. Under current law, a life term is automatic for murder, with the first chance at full parole for first-degree murder after 25 years.
