The majority of Canadians believe that judges should have at least some degree of discretion and flexibility when deciding a sentence. What we also found:

The overwhelming majority of Canadians (95%) felt that the best approach for determining fair and appropriate sentences for offenders involves giving judges at least some degree of discretion. Seven in ten (71%) Canadians thought the best way was to give judges some sort of guideline or range of sentences to choose from, with the option of going outside those ranges if they deem it necessary. About one-quarter (24%) of Canadians believed that the best way to determine a fair and appropriate sentence was to give judges full discretion (deciding on the sentence after looking at how the offence happened, why the offender did it and what sentences were given in other similar cases).

Part 7 (Political Activities) of the Public Service Employment Act and its Regulations provide a regime for governing the political activities of public servants, while recognizing the need to balance their rights to engage in political activities with the principle of an impartial public service. As such, public servants may engage in any political activity as long as it does not impair, or is not perceived as impairing, their ability to perform their duties in a politically impartial manner. The Public Service Commission (PSC) is responsible for safeguarding the political impartiality of the public service and public servants’ involvement in political activities, including:

  • providing guidance with respect to involvement in political activities;

  • granting permission and leave for candidacy in federal, provincial, territorial and municipal elections; and

  • investigating allegations of improper political activities and taking corrective action when they are founded

Public servants who are seeking nomination as or being a candidate in an election must obtain the PSC permission before entering into any public candidacy activities. The PSC’s decision is based on ensuring political impartiality, and encompasses the nature of the election, the nature of the public servant’s duties and the level and visibility of their position.
