Yes, Harold Spring deserves a second look for a pardon. Justice Gleeson's determination that the decision lacked "transparency and intelligibility" is important.
No, pardons should only be granted in extremely rare and exceptional circumstances. The Parole Board of Canada's argument that the pardon might bring the administration of justice into disrepute is fair and reasonable.
