'“Restorative justice is a proven model of success. It gives people a second chance … and it gives us all a chance to heal, support and understand one another.” The changes announced Tuesday will allow appropriate cases to be referred to restorative justice earlier — in the pre-charge and pre-trial stage in some instances. Previously, a case could only be referred after a charge had been laid or after a conviction. “We are lifting these restrictions to allow for an earlier and more responsive intervention to the impacts of crime,” said Furey.'
