Corrections Reform: Ontario and Beyond
Monday, June 18 from 7 PM – 9 PM
Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre
2158 Gottingen St, Halifax, NS B3K 3B4
Featuring Howard Sapers, Independent Advisor to the Ontario Government on Corrections Reform and Former Correctional Investigator of Canada (2004-2016)
Taking inspiration from recent successful reform efforts in Ontario, this event will bring attention to aspects of corrections in Nova Scotia needing change. This includes overrepresentation of Indigenous and African Nova Scotian prisoners, the continuing problem of solitary confinement, and the need for more community-based alternatives to support those caught up in the criminal justice system.
The event will also feature a memorial to Emmett Peters, a traditional elder from Paq’tnkek First Nation near Antigonish, who was a longtime supporter of the Friendship Centre’s Seven Sparks program. This ECPJS event is supported by the Schulich School of Law, the Law, Justice & Society program at Dalhousie, and the Nancy Chair in Women’s Studies at MSVU
Take a guided hike in the future Halifax Wilderness Park! Hosted by the Nature Conservancy of Canada and guided by instructors at the School of Planning, discover the less-travelled trails between Colpitt Lake and Williams Lake, just off Purcell’s Cove Rd.
Hikers will learn about the ecology of the the wilderness area along with the plans in place to make it a designated wilderness space in our city forever! Participants will leave having seen beautiful natural vistas and knowing the trails, able to return time and time again.
