Do the crime, pay the doctor?

Alberta is proposing legislation, that would require criminals to pay the health-care costs of their victims.

There has been dissenting opinions from the Criminal Lawyers Association, that regard this legislation as doing nothing to resolve the issues that lead to crime.

Justice Minister Alison Redford commented, that the government is comfortable with the idea of becoming the first province with such a law, but concedes everyone is entitled to challenge legislation.
