Crimes & Punishments of Canadian Women BOOK TWO (Paperback)
Are you opposed to death penalty? If you are in favor, it is likely that reading this book will convince you to oppose it because of the statistically inevitable miscarriages of justice. This work in two volumes brings to life fourteen women, with their strengths and weaknesses, their inexpiable crimes and their inhuman punishments, their guilt or their innocence. They are the only Canadian women who died by Court Order in what is now our great country. The motives for these female crimes are particularly noteworthy: extramarital love was the main motive, theft and religious discrimination in two cases, and revenge in one. Among the 699 men who were sentenced to death, the order of motives was totally reversed, and drunkenness was more frequent than love passion. All of these criminal investigations are based on the Federal Archives of Justice in Ottawa.
