Strict Punishment for Drug Crimes Advocated
OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino has called for hard punishment for drug crimes in Ontario.

Speaking to The Packet & Times, he said that drug trafickers profit from misery of other people and they should not be allowed to do so. "We need to have stiff sentences, certain and meaningful sanctions. That in itself will be a deterrent," Fantino said.

He also stated that he did not agree with the notion that prison really does not help curb crimes related to drugs. "Well, you know what? While some of these recidivist career criminals are doing jail time, they're not committing more crime."
