NS justice program

Justice Minister Diana Whalen is expanding the restorative justice program to the whole province because pilot projects have been so successful.

Restorative justice requires offenders to take responsibility for their actions and holds them accountable to the community and their victims.

The pilot projects began in 2011 in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality, East Hants; and Colchester County, but now it will be offered across the province and will include adult offenders.
