A justice system that focuses on the victim, as well as the offender

From the article by  Harvey Voogd in the Edmonton Journal:

When a crime occurs, it does not affect just one person, but also impacts their family members and the entire community.

This was personally made clear to my family in the fall of 2008 when our pickup was stolen in the middle of the night. Though it was parked in front of our home in Edmonton and under a street light, neither we nor our neighbours heard anything.

The truck was recovered near Alberta Beach, but was written off due to a combination of damage sustained and the age of the vehicle. We received $3,700 for the loss, but our new second-hand truck cost $11,000 -- a financial hit that we had not anticipated.
