Welcome to "Uncle Vic's" new Big House and largest Canadian onshore tax haven!

Good Day Readers:

Can you guess what this is? I guarantee you won't believe it. Can you get it on the first pircure or second or third or, do you have to wait until the fourth?

Let me see now ..... "Which government is responsible for this "punishment centre?" Oh yes, our current government! Compare this to all Residential Care adn Nursing Homes for our Seniors.

A special thank you to Enzo the Barber (and friends) for sending these pictures.
Enzo's the site's official role model, mentor, spiritual leader, intellectual guru, confessor and Godfather. Haven't had a bad haircut or beard trim in over 20-years of weekly visits otherwise CSB would have done him or failing that had him done long ago!

Vic Toews: Why we're tough on crime

Our government is committed to initiatives that make our communities safer. That is why the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) continues to provide training and job skills so that criminals can prove they are ready to be released back into our communities. The protection of Canadians must come first.

In February 2009, the CSC announced that prison-farm operations located in federal institutions would be discontinued. The federal government recorded $7.5-million in revenues from the six farms in 2007-08, but expenses were $11.6-million, leaving the CSC with an operational net loss of over $4-million for the farms. Over the past five years, less than 1% of those released found employment on independently operated farms.

We do not believe that a 1% success rate is an effective use of taxpayers’ dollars. (Other prison-site business programs will continue, including manufacturing, services, construction, and textiles.)

Our approach toward corrections will require us to expand capacity within existing prisons. This is a small price to pay to ensure dangerous criminals don’t create new victims or terrorize previous ones. We want to keep offenders, particularly dangerous repeat offenders, off the streets, and we are prepared to pay the cost in order to do that. It does cost money to deal with serious criminals. But failing to do so comes with significant costs as well, and not just in dollar terms.

The Truth in Sentencing Act was passed to ensure that convicted offenders serve a sentence that reflects the severity of their crimes. Under the previous system, a violent criminal sentenced to nine years in prison could be on our streets in three years if he or she spent two years awaiting trial. In at least one case, a convicted terrorist was released one day after being sentenced.

The provinces and police supported our efforts to end credit for time served — efforts the Ignatieff Liberals tried to block. We disagree with the Liberals’ view that dangerous criminals should be released onto our streets early just to save a buck.

As it stands, a drug trafficker or white collar criminal sentenced to 12 years could be released into the community on day parole in just two years. Canadians find this unacceptable, and we hope our legislation will pass as soon as Parliament reconvenes in the Fall.

Our government is unwavering in its commitment to provide our law-enforcement agencies with the tools they say they need to make our streets safer. I am pleased that our government is delivering, because we know that those tools achieve results in the fight against organized criminals and gangs.
