Conservative Vic Toews: ally or poison apple?

Justice critic blasts parole for murderer

'This guy had not demonstrated in any way that he was fit to be released,' Tory MP says

Wednesday, August 11, 2004

VANCOUVER -- Federal Conservative justice critic Vic Toews called for changes to Canada's parole system yesterday after a convicted murderer out on day parole was charged with the beating death of a 75-year-old man during a home invasion.

"The record clearly shows that this guy had not demonstrated in any way that he was fit to be released," Mr. Toews said.

He was referring to the case of Eric Norman Fish, 42, charged yesterday with first-degree murder in the slaying of Bill Abramenko of Vernon, B.C.

Mr. Fish had a long record of prison misbehaviour and parole violations when he was allowed to stay at a halfway house in Vernon last April, including a prior conviction for second-degree murder during a 1984 home invasion.

"This to me demonstrates simply a desire to get the person back out on the street," Mr. Toews said, "without a real consideration of whether parole has been earned."

He said that the criteria for parole need to be changed to put the onus on individuals actually earning their parole.

"It shouldn't simply be a matter of serving time. It should be a matter of a demonstrable effort toward being rehabilitated," Mr. Toews said. "We've got to reformulate the [parole] test to clarify this."

The parole board decision approving limited day parole for Mr. Fish, despite two recent parole violations for using cocaine, noted that the inmate had completed "numerous programs" in jail and gained "some insight into the dynamics of [his] offending."

The board gave Mr. Fish credit for immediately re-involving himself in relapse-prevention programs after his most recent cocaine lapse.

Mr. Toews questioned the importance of such factors. "What weight has been put on these things to come to the conclusion that there's no undue risk to the community?

"He's taken certain steps but I don't think anyone would have said that he's earned it [day parole] with his kind of record."

At the time of the break-in and beating death of Mr. Abramenko, Mr. Fish had been missing from his halfway facility, known as Howard House, for six weeks.

Joanne Crawford, executive director of the John Howard Society, which runs Howard House, said the facility houses an average of about 18 federal parolees on any given day.

Police in Vernon have been criticized for not alerting the public to Mr. Fish's escape.

The picturesque Okanagan community is also in an uproar over the fact that Mr. Fish had been sent there on day parole.

Mr. Toews said there needs to be a full investigation into all aspects of the case. "Not only the parole board conduct, the police conduct, but also the criteria on which people are granted parole."

He added that the Criminal Code should establish minimum mandatory sentences for home invasions.

"The whole idea of breaking into people's houses is not simply a property offence. Residential break-ins can lead to exactly the kind of situation that happened in Vernon."

Regional parole board director Evelyn Blair said that it is almost certain a joint investigation by the board and Corrections Canada will be held.

"Whenever any serious harm comes to anyone in the community, we review all the circumstances."

You guys think you know the whole story but you don't really Eric Norman Fish is my son by birth and I personaly think he should have never been let out his past goe's much deeper then you know why the police don't let you know the whole story is beyond me his real name was Eric Norman Lafontain was born in Windsor his partner was Eric Casspers he only served less then 10 years of 25 tell me where justice is there really is none I feel the same as Mr. Ambrekos family doe's he turned into an animal and not by my choice I tried to get coustody of him as a small boy and was told by the Windsor court get out or I was going to jail myself I remember this to the word even though its now 2008 his name by father should have been Eric Norman Nicholls I was going to give him my name but you may not belive me but Eric has 4 brothers and 4 sisters all 2 and three years apart if I raised him I must say he wouldn't be where he is today, Reason why he's like he is because children's aid put him on drugs most his life with them then sent out to the Fish Family so I found out and was sexualy mulested by his adopted mother many times over plus beaten many times,I'm not saying I was the best of a father to him but our so called justice system is bull S. If you really would like to know I personaly called the RCMP and asked he be put in for the rest of his life there's no room out here for a person like him thanks to our strong law and order some Police are really great and hard working people but wow these day's I would say half and half but you know I was told they like talking to family to get there views in regard lifer or let him out to kill again also as much as I hate to say this I'm from the old farm and still belive in capital punishment take a life give up your own or if there is war send them to the front lines and make use of there way then there's no guilt on us if they die there bury them there. I can say that a lot will hate to see this blog I wrote but we all belive in the right thing.I belive from other story's I have heard he killed more then just two but hear say you know what I mean and also the prisons today are a big farse when Eric can send me a letter ears ago asking for 15,000 dolars he was going to break out and head for south America that was a joke to me when any prisoner gets releast they should be totaly searched in AD after being let go that is only a sample of his life,want to know more sure ask I'm a very concerned person about the law they killed my brother when he was 24 and got clean away with it a kid hars that stuff what do you get sounds to me like revenge or something like that and by the way I never heard from the RCMP since I spoke with them in Kamloops over this so called kid of mine only person called was his mother 46 years later talk about scary thanks to hr thats where his life went to hell and me being pushed away,you want more the my email is and may God be with the Ambreko family from the bottom of my heart.

My greatest sympathies are out to the families of those whom my brother had hurt. our father who wrote the big comment has no room to talk about any for of justice. He got very little time for sexual involvment with my kid sister. How he can even be allowed to do anything is beyond me. To me ED....... your just as big of a scum bag as my brother. I wish we had the death penelty cause I would try my best to have seen you get it... You destroyed lives that weren't your to destory. May god punish you as he see's fit. I am glad I had a great family to show me how to grow up right.
