The federal government has announced $36 million in cuts to young offender programs. The cuts were announced last week in what appeared to be a funding announcement. Instead, it was a 20 per cent reduction in spending on these programs. Critics say the cuts are short-sighted and a good example of how the Harper government is battling crime. The cuts affect programs that help keep young offenders out of jail.
