CBC: The Current Bill C-10 & Restorative Justice

This morning, retired judge Barry Stuart (served in the Yukon, now is affiliated with the Restorative Justice program at Simon Fraser – (http://www.sfu.ca/crj/) was interviewed on The Current. The topic was Bill C-10. He apparently was the first judge (in the Yukon or maybe Canada as a whole – not sure) to introduce sentencing circles into court proceedings.

You can hear the interview here: http://www.cbc.ca/thecurrent/   (It’s a very powerful interview. He pulls no punches about how the criminal justice system – especially the courts and prisons – fails everyone – and how what Bill C-10 proposes to do will only make things worse.)
