Infusing Reconciliation into the Sentencing Process

  • Colin Fehr

Abstract

A fundamental aspect of achieving proportionality in sentencing is enshrined in section 718.2(e) of the Criminal Code. It provides that “all available sanctions, other than imprisonment, that are reasonable in the circumstances and consistent with the harm done to victims or to the community should be considered for all offenders, with particular attention to the circumstances of Aboriginal offenders.”
