Abstract

The Criminal Law in Canada is clearly in need of revision but the machinery to do so is inadequate. Reform has only been haphazard and made without the assistance of modern criminological studies. The author proposes the establishment of a permanent Criminal Law Revision Committee to solve these problems. He sets out what its constitution and functions should be but emphasizes that it would compliment rather than replace our system of parliamentary responsibility.
