Source: (1999) Ottawa, Canada: Church Council on Justice and Corrections. Downloaded 18 January 2005.The Church Council on Justice and Corrections (CCJC) is a Canadian coalition of faith-based individuals and churches advocating for a more humane way to practice criminal justice. In this news release, the CCJC responds to a proposed new youth justice law in Canada. The CCJC, in view of the proposed law, urges public education about the extent of crime and Canadaâs âaddiction to punishment.â? While the CCJC supports some of the changes envisioned in the new law â such as priorities oriented toward rehabilitation, meaningful accountability, and more alternatives to custody â it also cautions about the prospects for improved youth justice if the public debate is fixated on âgetting tough versus being lenient.â?
