B.C. vows to act as report makes dozens of recommendations to curb prolific offenders

The British Columbia government says it is getting to work implementing several recommendations made in an independent report aimed at curbing prolific offenders and random violence in the province. Attorney General Murray Rankin says the report revealed the complexity of the challenge, which is often linked to mental health and addictions, while Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth says the government will start with the return of a prolific offenders management program.
