CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM -Trudeau mandates overhaul of Conservative justice reforms
How can this be a bad thing? “The changes mark a fundamental shift to a less “punitive” approach to criminal justice. Many of the criminal justice reforms brought in over the last decade were ad hoc and ineffective. They were rapid-fire reforms and often came without a lot of in-depth study and certainly without a lot of understanding about how all of these reforms would affect one another,”
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has ordered a major overhaul of Canada’s criminal justice system. The ministers of justice and public safety have been given mandates to review and dump some changes to laws the Conservatives brought in and bring in new ones, including the legalization of marijuana.
