Nov. 8, 2011: 300 Winnipeggers, from 13 organizations, demonstrated at the Manitoba Legislature and the Winnipeg Remand Centre to urge the Manitoba Government to join Quebec, Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador in opposing the Harper government’s omnibus crime bill, C-10, Safe Streets and Communities Act. Their key message, “time does not stop crime” rebutted the government’s contention that locking up more offenders for longer periods is an effective crime prevention technique. For more information about C-10, contact the John Howard Society of Manitoba.
