Weekly Meeting - David Daubney, Department of Justice - Criminal Law Policy, "Alternative Sentencing"

Weekly meeting held at the Chateau Laurier at 12:30pm.

Mark Max introduced our very own David Daubney, in song, as "the guy you ought to know if you get in the soup!" David spoke on his own fascination with and his introduction to crime and punishment early in his career. David explained the increase in the prison population in the last decade and urged the government to take a hard look at different approaches to dealing with offenders of a non-violent nature. Conditional sentences, sentencing circles in native communities, diversion agreements, compensation and restitution are a few of the new methods now being used.
