Mandatory minimums. Ok by the the Supreme Court.

Story here.

The Supreme Court found that sentencing provisions in the Criminal Code provide "remedial protection" to those whose rights have been infringed and that sentences must respect "statutory minimums." "Although in some exceptional cases a sentence reduction outside statutory limits may be possible under s. 24(1) of the Charter as the sole effective remedy for egregious misconduct by state agents, this is not such a case," the court ruled.

Election Canada is loaded with liberals' appointees; giving the Election canada the freedom not to interfer with the liberals who still own money.
