Description

Canada’s current, punishment-oriented system for dealing with young offenders does not work; it simply ensures that we jail more youth than any other country, including the United States. Green and Healy argue that a new approach is needed and offer ample local and global evidence to make the case for a shift to restorative justice. Tough on Kids details the development and current state of Canadian law, as well as different approaches that have been used in dealing with youth crime. With statistics on young people and the law as well as stories of young clients, Green and Healy illustrate the very real human costs of doing nothing.
