In Canada, solving youth crime tribal way

In this article Walker points to the potential of restorative justice ideas and processes in the Canadian justice system. Those ideas and processes may give greater satisfaction to victims, and they may offer governments an effective alternative to issues and problems in the justice system, especially the costs of incarceration. Walker uses examples of cases from western Canada (where restorative justice resonates with Indian tribal justice) to demonstrate restorative justice in action, including conferencing, restitution, and involvement of victims.
