In theory, Canadians have equal rights. In practice, they do not.
Today, Team Dimitri releases the Justice Reform chapter of our campaign platform. Designed to address systemic racism, over-incarceration, inaccessibility, erosion of privacy, and other issues of justice in Canada, it proposes seven areas of reform:
- Police and Prosecution Reform
- Prison and Parole Reform
- Access to Justice
- Holding Corporations Accountable
- Reforming Judicial Appointments
- International Law
- CSIS, Surveillance, and Privacy
Note: The Green Party prides itself on having a member-driven policy process. At the same time, the leadership race is an important opportunity to discuss the policy direction of the party. The policies proposed here, which will be brought forward at the next general meeting for member approval, represent Dimitri's vision for how the party can live its values more completely in the political environment of 2020 and beyond.
