In 1997, Ujjal Dosanjh, Attorney General in British Columbia, Canada, wrote this survey of already implemented and proposed strategic reforms for British Columbia’s justice system. The reforms are based on widespread advice from justice system professionals, community organizations, and members of the public. They aim for a restorative justice system in which communities have a primary role in developing policies and programs. This document sketches the context of change leading to reform; reforms already achieved; and principles and framework for reform in criminal justice, civil and family justice, and justice administration.
