A thing that matters...

Here is the first bit of an article I’ve written for an upcoming trade show – 4 Life Expo. It’s titled ‘A Thing That Matters’ (with apologies to Charles Krauthammer's – Things That Matter.)

You have been thinking about a sun drenched cruise for years and you’ve been working towards that end by reading everything about Central American rain forests, the cruise line you want to use and even solving that nagging issue of how best to transfer to the ship from the airport. Your Canadian passport is good for another three years and it looks like clear sailing either this season or next.

Of course, to get there from here, your planned route takes you through US Customs at Toronto Pearson International Airport. Crossing into the US with a Canadian passport should be a simple matter. However, both Canada and the US now share all criminal information through sources such as the FBI’s National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and the RCMP’s Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC). The information sharing between Canada and the United States happens when your passport is swiped at the border. Your criminal background, perhaps dating back 10, 15 or 25 years or more, now becomes… a thing that matters.

The complete article will be published and available at the trade show at the Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, Saturday and Sunday, March 8 to March 9, 2014. Impact Pardons Plus (IPP) will be in Booth 12. Drop by and find out what IPP can do for you.

Clearing the driveway, I was thinking

Okay, I bow to your demands. Over this last week of snow falls, I have had many, many requests for 'the driveway' story. For those of you who haven't read it, here it is; for those who read it and came to IPP last year, we've all come a long way. Enjoy.

Clearing the driveway, I was thinking…  

Originally published 28 Feb 2013

At 5am, ploughing the driveway today, I realized how much life mirrors ‘ploughing the driveway’. Okay, maybe the snow was a little too heavy and I’ve hurt my brain somehow but stay with me…it’ll make sense soon.

So you start with a clean, dry plough – mine is a double-wide, 2.5 foot push-plough - and you look out over a wide expanse of driveway (the start of a fresh, new life) You have no idea what is in store for you.

The ploughing begins (life begins). Moving forward there is little resistance at first. (We grow, we learn through the years from 1 to 12) The plough begins to fill up (we gather our stuff) and the pushing is tougher (we’re growing up, 14, 17 and meeting challenges) so, pushing harder, we continue forward. (We keep going.) Gathering more wet, heavy snow (life’s baggage), a decision is made not to follow a straight path because the snow is getting heavier (you’re between 18 and 28 and you know everything – no one can tell you anything) so you veer to the side, wanting to dump the snow (life’s baggage) into the snow bank and continue on your way.

I didn't make it to the snow bank today (...but it seemed like a good idea at the time.) Now you have a big lump of heavy, sticky, wet snow (a criminal charge, life’s challenges like friends, education, cars, vacations.. can sometimes take us to that ‘seemed-like-a-good-idea-at-the-time', point. We all get to that point, it’s just that we don’t all get caught.)

The snow is now somewhere between where it was and where I want to put it. (Sometimes in life, we don’t get too far because ‘stuff’ piles up, it stops our forward motion) The snow, left there, would stop me from doing what I love to do…my job. (Is your pile of snow stopping you from doing what you want to do? Is there a wall still in the way? We are all subject to the consequences of the choices we make.)

I needed something else to finish the job. (help)

I got a smaller snow shovel and broke the heavy, wet lumps into smaller chunks that I could get to the snow bank a little at a time.

In your life, when things pile up and you veer off course; you make decisions you may not be proud of, suffer the consequences and seem to be at a standstill because a criminal charge has put this wall in front of you that you can’t to budge. So get help.

Call Impact Pardons Plus (IPP). We’ll put you on the road to a better tomorrow, today. (A ploughed road.)

Sometimes, most times, I can clean the snow away myself – today I couldn’t.

An rs does not require a CPIC...

Often times, a person’s desire to quickly get started on a record suspension (rs), means their glance through the Record Suspension Application Guide will leave them with the impression they need a background check. (Sometimes called a police check, name check, police certificate, CIPC (pronounced “see-pick), or other names.)

The guide actually reads, “Get your Local Police Records Check(s)” but to someone who is determined to begin the process quickly, this seems to call for a CPIC and a CPIC they can do right now, themselves.

What they overlook is that the guide mentions the Local Police Records Checks (LPRC) as Step 4 but steps 1, 2, and 3 should be looked at first as each step in the process builds on the previous steps. Information returned in Step 1 should be utilized to complete Step 2 and on it goes until all the steps have been completed. I suspect the problem with these steps (for people who want to get it done quickly) is the time lag between taking the step and actually completing the step.

Step 1 requires you get fingerprints so the RCMP can release your Criminal Record. Impact Pardons can book a fingerprint appointment for you today but the RCMP may still take from 8 weeks to 12 weeks (or more) to return your criminal record. It’s during the 3rd, 4th, and 5th week people get anxious and in an effort to “hurry things along”, go ahead and get documents they don’t need.

That’s money spent that doesn’t need to be spent. The price of doing your rs yourself just went up. Other things like allowing documents to time out, not including an affidavit when required or not checking the accuracy of the court records can – and often will– put the cost of a ‘DIY’ rs application beyond our IPP Consult fee. Only you know how distressed you would be to see your rs application returned to you with a ‘still-to-do’ list from the Parole Board of Canada.

Call 343 333 1778 or email IPP. Let Impact Pardons Plus put you on the road to a better tomorrow, today... the first time.
