October 18: Panel discussion on Safe Streets and Communities Act

October 5, 2011

On Tuesday, October 18th, experts from the fields of law, harm reduction, prison, women, youth and victims' rights will convene to discuss Bill C-10, the federal government's Safe Streets and Communities Act, and its impact on Canadian families, communities and our economy. The CBC's Maureen Brosnahan will moderate this lively, interactive panel.

The sweeping omnibus crime bill is part of the federal government's so-called "war on crime" -- combining nine bills that died on the Order Paper in our last Parliament. But Opposition critics say the bill goes overboard, with significant consequences for our wallets and the health of our communities, without any evidence that it will prevent crime. Come hear what the experts have to say: what does Bill C-10 mean for you?

The event is hosted by the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network, Canadian Harm Reduction Network, Toronto Harm Reduction Task Force, Prisoners with HIV/AIDS Support Action Network (PASAN), Community Justice Coalition (Human Rights) and others, with the support of the Canadian Drug Policy Coalition.
