Compassionate Justice Speaker Series – October 20 at 12:30 p.m.



Compassionate Justice Speaker Series

The Compassionate Justice Speaker Series program for 2019-20 continues an exploration of issues and concerns in Canada’s criminal justice system.

Our first speaker on Sunday October 20th at 12:30 pm will be James Lockyer, Counsel to the Wrongfully Convicted

The title of his presentation is: Guilty and Convicted Until Proven Innocent

This happens. Our justice system depends on the intervention of humans and at times it fails. When this happens, a life is tragically altered. James Lockyer has been a Canadian pioneer in helping those who have been wrongfully convicted. He is a founding director of the Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted and was awarded the Order of Canada in 2019 in recognition of his work. Lockyer speaks to how we can right big wrongs.

Please see our Globe & Mail ad and our full season flyer for detail.
 
Admission is free and a light lunch will be served for all attendees prior to our 12:30 start time.
 
This is our invitation to you. Feel free to pass this on to others who may have an interest.
We hope you are able to attend.
