I read an amazing article in the news the other day. The Globe and Mail brought to my attention the writings of Justice Melvyn Green, who authored an article called “Exercising Restraint in a Punitive Age.”

The Globe and Mail article is here. The article by Justice Green is here.

It’s a worth a read to understand the developments in sentencing over the years. Hopefully it’s not all doom and gloom by the time I retire!
