What do Canadians want from their criminal justice system? The Conservative government has put forward the idea of "super prisons"; the government has already decided to close a number of existing prisons and place those prisoners into already overcrowded prisons.
Changes to the criminal code, such as increased mandatory minimums for drug offenses, will also lead to an increased prison population and once again, overcrowding.
Is this really what Canadians want or even need? More importantly, is this even the best approach? What other approaches can Canada take towards criminal justice in Canada?
Please join us as Natalie DeFreitas, a counselor who is passionate about "restorative justice" talks to us about restorative justice, what it means for Canada and it's criminal justice system.
These events are open to everyone, so feel free to drop by, have a coffee and snack, and bring your friends and family - whether Liberals or not. There is strength in a diversity of opinions.
