Petition E-1007 challenges some amendments made to the Canadian pardon programs by the Harper administration in 2012. The changes of concern refer to the eligibility wait times, which were doubled from 3 years (for summary offences) and 5 years (for indictable offences), to 5 and 10 years. The cost of application was also quadrupled from $150 to $624, making it inaccessible to those who might not be able to afford this all at once. All of this combined creates a significant barrier for some 3.8 million Canadians, approximately, or 14% of the entire adult population!
Petition E-1007’s goal is not to actually change anything, in a sense, but to revert the system back to its former state, which was a proven success.
