ARE OUR COURTS SOFT ON CRIME?

“The Supreme Court did not side with the criminals; rather, it simply held that jail sentences in Canada must not be grossly disproportionate to the severity of the offence. The financial costs, however, pale in comparison to the toll suffered by our democracy when people receive disproportionate jail sentences because the government chose to advance a political agenda rather than heed the objective evidence weighing against its position.”
