I applaud the CCE for publishing this sort of guide - it's absolutely necessary, and from what I've seen of the document, it looks thorough, clear, and comprehensive. I wish all jurisdictions had them, and I will be recommending it as a model on the blog I edit for Reclaiming Futures (

Nonetheless, I hope the CCE doesn't stop here; for simpler, even more user-friendly guides are also needed. I know my eyes would glaze over if I were handed a 52-page guide after my child had been arrested, and I might never pick it up again.

But perhaps I'm wrong. It would certainly be interesting to know what a random sample of youth and parents of the guide thought of it (and for all I know, they were heavily consulted in creating this one) and what they'd deem most important to know at different stages of the process.
