NDP Justice Critic Irfan Sabir issued the following statement regarding the UCP’s creation of the Alberta Parole Board:

“Experts agree this parole board will only add another layer of bureaucracy and do nothing to reduce crime.

“If the UCP really want to reduce crime, they should invest in supporting Albertans through the pandemic and reverse the cuts they’ve made to the justice system, including the $17 million they cut to the Edmonton and Calgary police budgets.”
