Years after adopting minimum sentencing laws, the US has announced they have been a failure and are eliminating some of them. Our current government is intent on following the US path.......despite the US acknowledgement that minimum sentencing and the "War on Drugs" have been a dismal failure.

Norway has a totally different approach to incarceration for crimes, and they have excellent results.

Canada should study and adopt their methods...............and discard the failed policies of the US.

Everyone wants safer communities. The question is the best way to achieve that goal.
