Trudeau says Tory ‘tough on crime’ rhetoric only tough on Black, Indigenous Canadians​


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Wednesday that policies the Conservatives claimed were “tough on crime” were “really just tough on Black Canadians and Indigenous Canadians.”

He made the comment during a heated exchange in question period that saw Conservatives accuse the Liberals of planning to “make it allowable for criminals to get house arrest” by repealing policies that broadened the use of mandatory minimum sentences.

“He’s going after law-abiding Canadians but going soft on gangsters,” said Conservative MP Shannon Stubbs before asking: “Will he scrap Bill C-5?”

Trudeau said the government is repealing “failed” Conservative policies.

“They claim to be tough on crime but really they’re just tough on Black Canadians and Indigenous people,” Trudeau said before being drowned out by shouts.

“Our criminal justice reform legislation turns the page on failed Conservative party policies,” he repeated afterwards. “What we need is a system that doesn’t target people because of systemic discrimination.”

Mandatory minimums have been clearly shown to disproportionately impact Black, Indigenous and racialized Canadians, according to the Research and Statistics Division of Justice Canada.

Data published in 2017 looked at incarcerations over a 10-year period from 2006/2007 to 2016/2017 — which coincides with the date former prime minister Stephen Harper took office in January 2006, and the first full year following the Liberal win in October 2015.

According to the data set, during that time period “the proportion of Indigenous offenders increased most dramatically, from 20 per cent of admissions in 2007/08 to 25 per cent in 2016/2017.”

Is he speaking from first hand experience?

Meanwhile homicides were one a downward trend during the Harper years. Funny how they suddenly shot up (no pun intended) right after Groper was elected, and they keep rising. If one looks at the stats from 2000 on, it's pretty clear that Liberal govts result in higher homicide and violent crime rates.
At one point Groper tried to bury reduced sentencing legislation in an omnibus bill (you know, those things Trudeau condemned when the Conservatives used them) for those convicted of gang and terror related crimes.

Meanwhile the stupid fucksticks want to keep Tamara Lich in jail for leading a mostly peaceful protest. I'm not sure if that's irony or just pure cognitive dissonance on Groper's part. Especially since Lich is Metis.

Couldn't be because these identifiable groups commit the majority of crimes? Or is turdOWE claiming that these two groups are not as bright as white criminals and get caught more often?
