'Time and Punishment' Now Canada's Way
Jeffrey Simpson, Globe and Mail
Any week now, we might expect the Correctional Service of Canada to be renamed Punishment Canada.
Corrections – the idea that those in prison might be assisted while incarcerated to be better prepared for life outside jail – is apparently foreign to the Harper government. Instead, it wants to put more people away for longer, then, figuratively speaking, throw away the key. Punishment is in; correction is out.
