It costs the Canadian taxpayer $75,000 a year to maintain a prisoner in a Canadian federal prison. It cost tens of thousands to convict him. Yet it does nothing to prevent the crimes from continuing. It fails to address the root problems.

The root problem is poor parenting. The parents of criminals are the ones that have the best chance at curbing their children's bad habits. Do you truly believe a criminal that was abandoned by their parents, not loved or abused by them is going to listen to some social worker? Why is it so easy to get a divorce these days? Divorce rates have never been higher. Do we not realize how detrimental that is to children? The only way to stop crime is for parents to raise their children with lots of love and to know of their whereabouts. Families are being broken apart everyday and the potential for disaster is ever looming. Parents need to stop being so selfish and stick together for the sake of their children. I can't for the life of me figure out why couples give up on each other so easily these days. Marriage is a challenge and it's never perfect but you shouldn't turn on each other when life is stressful. Do vows even mean anything anymore? The family unit is what we really need to address. Why is no one doing that? It's far too easy to get a divorce and that needs to change. My parents have been married for 40 years and raised 4 children. That's commitment.
Unless your solution is universal abortion which would certainly address the "root problem" what do you have to offer? Since your objections seem to be phrased in dollars how about cheaper jails in the Far North (no need for fences or guards) or chain gangs? In order to be a credible critic of anything you must have a better way of doing things ready for examination or you are kind of disqualified.It costs the Canadian taxpayer $75,000 a year to maintain a prisoner in a Canadian federal prison.

This is priceless.
