Catch Alberta Primetime tonight

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for Alberta Primetime’s weekly crime panel. I’ll be joined in the Calgary studio by defence lawyer David Andrews, while consultant and former Edmonton police chief Fred Rayner will join host Jennifer Martin in Edmonton. Here’s what’s in store:

  • A Supreme Court judgment that widened the interpretation of Internet luring to include offenders who make contact with minors and “groom” them even prior to an attempt to rendezvous with the child.
  • Talks between the Manitoba government and a Christian group, Prison Fellowship Canada, which is proposing the establishment of faith-based cellblocks teaching Christian values and morals to inmates who sign up.
  • Also in Manitoba, a proposal to create a separate school division for aboriginals as a way of keeping kids in school — and out of trouble.

(Alberta Primetime airs live at 7 p.m. MST on Access TV: Channel 13 in Calgary; Channel 351 on Bell TV; Channel 267 on Shaw Direct/Star Choice. You can visit the show’s segment archive to view past discussions about crime and other topics.)
