Currently in Canada, up to 30 criminal-justice bills are being examined by the Parliament. One of them, Bill C-479, suggests that the terms for a prisoner to be granted parole must be revised in a manner that makes it more difficult for prisoners to be released, in hopes of better protecting victims. Notably, the waiting period for a parole hearing would go from two years to five years.
