Canada's justice system is fucked they're too hard on the people that don't deserve it and too soft on those who do.
Sounds EXACTLY like the American legal system. Get caught distributing pot to your friends, mandatory prison sentence (often as much as 10 years). Kill someone (not in self defense), and chances are you'll be out in 6 or seven for "good behavior".
