Compassionate Justice Speaker Series
October 20, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Counsel to the Wrongfully Convicted
Guilty and Convicted Until Proven Innocent
This happens. Our justice system depends on the intervention of humans and at times it fails. When this happens, a life is tragically altered. James Lockyer has been a Canadian pioneer in helping those who have been wrongfully convicted. He is a founding director of the Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted and was awarded the Order of Canada in 2019 in recognition of his work. Lockyer speaks to how we can right big wrongs.
The Compassionate Justice Speaker Series is sponsored by Eglinton St. George’s United Church. Join us for a light lunch prior to the presentation at 12:30 pm. Free admission, donations gratefully accepted.
