REALITY vs. POLITICS -State of Incarceration – Doc Zone
The Harper gov’t has done a 180 degree turn in the direction of criminal law and is taking us down the disastrous path the U.S. has discovered doesn’t work. “It’s striking to realize that the crime rate is as low as it is, yet we’re undergoing the largest prison expansion since the 1930s.” The clear and proven fact is that more punishment does NOT lead to less crime.
Crime rates in Canada are plummeting, so why are we spending hundred of millions on new prisons?
