OTTAWA - The Green Party of Canada is joining the calls for the Manitoba government to appeal the Graham James sentence. The former junior hockey coach was sentenced to a paltry two years for sexually abusing the young boys under his care.
“We are very concerned that this light sentence will have a profound
effect on other victims who may never come forward, since they do not
appear to be taken seriously,” said Green Leader Elizabeth May, MP for
“This man could be out of prison by the end of the year. The punishment does not seem to fit the crime.”
“We also hope that treatment will be in place along with his
punishment. The victims deserve to know that everything possible is
being done to ensure this pedophile will not harm another child,” said
