A full slate of topics awaits the Alberta Primetime crime panel on Wednesday night. Consultant and former Edmonton police chief Fred Rayner, Calgary defence lawyer David Andrews and I promise a lively and informative discussion on the following issues:
- Proposed legislation from the federal government that would require Internet service providers to report websites containing child pornography and any suspected child exploitation crime committed by one of their users.
- Prime Minister Stephen Harper recently called Canada’s youth crime laws “a failure,” but British researchers say our country is a model worth copying. Who’s right?
- The use of handguns in homicides following harsh comments made earlier this month by a Calgary judge while handing a drug dealer an automatic life sentence for shooting another man on a downtown street.
