I’m scheduled (work permitting, of course) to appear on Alberta Primetime’s weekly crime panel tonight.
A couple of this week’s scheduled topics:
- The Harper government’s plan to eliminate Sec. 745.6 of the Criminal Code — the so-called “faint-hope” clause that allows murderers to seek a reduction in the time they have to wait for parole eligibility, if it is currently more than 15 years.
- People in Regina are angry that a convicted Calgary murderer and sex offender was paroled in their city. Why can offenders be paroled out-of-province, and is this a legitimate problem?
(Alberta Primetime airs at 7 p.m. MDT on Access TV: Channel 13 in Calgary; Channel 351 on Bell TV; Channel 267 on Shaw Direct/Star Choice.)
