New Houses, Strange Cases, and Victim Fines
So episode 48 - a new record. But you know that right? Because you subscribe to the show on iTunes and have already rated and reviewed the podcast- right? You should.
It has been a long time. Let's catch up: a new house, a new job, a day at Parliament Hill - oh and we put together too much IKEA furnature.
We also break down the new Liberal legislation that will roll back the prior Conservative government's changes to the victim fine surcharge. The Conservatives made the surcharge mandatory. The Liberals' bill restores the judge's discretion to impose a fair surcharge - no more bad breaking fines for the homeless.
A simple legislative change..... that took a year.
