Thank you, Mr. Chair.
To clarify for the member a bit, in this report we don't look at why there is occasionally non-concurrence with the Parole Board.
However, last year we published a chapter on the expansion of facilities. We did note in that report that there was a study done. Correctional Services Canada was looking at cases where they recommended release and release was denied, and the rationale for that.
In that internal Correctional Services study, they found that even though in those cases the service believed that they were ready for release, when they looked at the evidence presented, the evidence in fact was insufficient for the Parole Board. The question before them was whether the Parole Board was being fair and unbiased, and the conclusion was yes because they didn't have enough information.
