Crime & Punishment series

An investigation by The (Toronto) Star explores the state of crime and punishment in Canada. A new law increasing mandatory minimum sentencing was passed even though Canada's crime rate has dropped over 25 percent in the last 15 years. The series looks at the monetary and social costs of the a tougher approach to crime, including how U.S. mandatory minimums have failed to have the desired impact on curbing crime. Three never-before released data sets formed the foundation for this investigation.
