RESTORATIVE JUSTICE AND REHABILITATION – Liberals will review controversial mandatory minimums
“I recognize the need to empower judges and to uphold the discretion that judges have in particular circumstances, and (will be) looking more fundamentally or broadly at the criminal justice system in terms of restorative justice and rehabilitation,” Justice Minister Wilson-Raybould said. “Not just simply being tough on crime.” I’m looking forward to a renewed respect from this government for and dialogue with the courts and its judges.
Newly appointed Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould says the government will review the use of mandatory minimum sentences brought in under the former Conservative government’s “tough on crime” agenda.
