This book presents credible alternatives to prison and why there aren’t more. What Canadians want and need is “satisfying justice”: a response to crime that takes victims seriously and helps them heal, a response that calls offenders to account and deals with them effectively, a response that gets tough on the causes of crime and does something about them. This book contains over 100 entries with program descriptions and contact information, and explains why these alternatives are still not significantly reducing prison populations.
