Yes, but they must perform community service on a daily basis and be monitored by electronic means.

No, we should build more prisons, increase funding to offer education and skill building services for prisoners, and perform daily services in order to help reduce expenses.

@9WW4CMVConservativefrom Ontario  answered…4mos

If they are in for possession of an illegal substance, theft without violence, or a DUI situation that caused a death through mva should be released with community service, mental health assessments and check ins, along with two to eight mandatory meetings to ensure they will abide by laws going forward.

Abolish prison quotas Yes, but they must perform community service on a daily basis

@9HC3BH7Communistfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

i also feel like it depends because if someone is stealing and gets released then it still is something fellow citizens have to worry about because i personally know i wouldn't like knowing a thief was released then have to worry about running into one.

@9G42QNSPeople’s Partyfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

maybe need more information on cost of electronic braclet but I think combo of house arrest, limited or controled access to others, drug testing, community service or commhnity work, educations/skill building along with mental health treatment might reduce the repeat offenders and volume of crime.

@9G3LZJ2Conservativefrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Yes for certain crimes, but the must be on probation and perform community service

@9FTH6Q6New Democraticfrom Quebec  answered…1yr

no, but make the prisons into rehabilitation centres to try and reform people with lesser crimes so that we dont need to leave them there that long and then just moniter them after their sentence

@9FJR4RHNew Democraticfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

@9VSMVBTRhinocerosfrom Alberta  answered…6mos

Hard labour programs need to be implemented. Sitting around and playing cards all day isn’t good for anyone

@9SJ7Z5PPeople’s Partyfrom British Columbia  answered…11mos

i think it would depend on the original crime committed. Even non-violent prisoners who committed serious crimes should not be eligible.

@9S2M6JVConservativefrom Alberta  answered…11mos

Yes, but they must perform community service on a daily basis. As well, they should be placed under house arrest using an electronic bracelet.

@9RSVYC8New Democraticfrom Alberta  answered…12mos

Depending on the crime they should be allowed to live out in the world but have some sort of check in.

@9RLXMVCLibertarianfrom Saskatchewan  answered…12mos

Yes, it is called parole. Perhaps one should have a chance at parole more often or earlier into their sentence if they are non-violent offenders but I assume the rules are the way they are to help the members of parole boards across Canada not to become overwhelmed.

@9RHXKP9Communistfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Yes, but they must participate in education and skill-building community service on a daily basis

@9R3VCF8Communistfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Yes, but their sentence outside of the prison (house arrest, community service, etc.) should be decided based on the crime and the individual.

The whole concept of jails needs to be reformed. Let's focus on rehabilitating people and providing them with the skills and emotional capacity to re-enter society as healthy, productive individuals.

@9LJTYZFPeople’s Partyfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

No, and reform the current prison system; crowding criminals together for a period of time doesn't fix the issue.

@9L9SKTRNew Democraticfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Yes, only if proven to contribute to society in a productive manner

@9L6RC3CCommunistfrom Saskatchewan  answered…1yr

Yes, but we should provide rehab centres when needed and they need to do a psychological evaluation

@9KSNBFGNew Democraticfrom British Columbia  answered…1yr

I think they should be released by with a lot of supports. Most people don't commit crimes because they want to be criminals, they commit crimes out of desperation. If they had resources, supports, retraining, optional relocation, etc., it would be better for society to have more people contributing to communities in a positive way than in prison.

@9KG4GNJRhinocerosfrom British Columbia  answered…1yr

There should be a facility especially for non violent prisoners to go if this situation arises, or one for them in general. A rehabilitation center of some sorts.

@9K8KKDWRhinocerosfrom Nova Scotia  answered…1yr

@9K7QDFHCommunistfrom British Columbia  answered…1yr

@9JRX688New Democraticfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

yes, but i think it would depend on the crime and behavior and they should do the duraition of atleast two years supervised on house arrest to assure they are going to be safe to put back on the streets
