Conditional Sentences

Conditional sentencing should be retained and enhanced by expanding its availability, increasing available monitoring resources, emphasizing victim-offender mediation, restitution and public education.

Crime Prevention

Crime prevention that is community based and focuses on addressing the underlying causes of crime should be seen as the primary approach in fighting crime.

Keeping Communities Safe From Crime

Public Safety is best assured by laws anchored in research and based upon humane and equitable principles.

Mandatory Minimum Sentences

Sentences should be based on individual contextual factors relating to each offence, rather than legislated minimum sentences that result in ineffective, expensive, and unduly harsh periods of incarceration.

Pardons (Record Suspension)

All ex-offenders should have the right to apply for a pardon or suspension of a criminal record, after having served their full sentence and having spent a definite period of demonstrated crime-free life in the community.


The gradual supervised release of offenders who have demonstrated responsibility to change offers the greatest likelihood of successful re-entry and continued safety for the community.
