Abstract

This article reviews the potential effects of Bill C-10 and related legislation that provide for more legal minimum sentences and reduce the possibility of conditional release. Without more resources overcrowding - an already pressing issue in Canadian corrections - will increase. We further review the potential effects of overcrowding as exemplified in other jurisdiction.
