Crawford: Youth Diversion Bill policy focus is based in wrong ministry
by Patrice Walters
Opposition Senator Damion Crawford is lamenting that the Child Diversion Bill is not focused on youth development, which would deter young people from being in conflict with the law.
According to him, the bill addresses the problems that occur, after the child has done something contrary to the law, rather than putting measures in place to prevent these incidents from taking place.
Speaking in Senate this morning Mr. Crawford said, the concept of the bill is a good one, however, more work needs to be done.
