Criminal Lawyer and Author
Beyond Incarceration: Safety and True Criminal Justice
Ms. Mallea will lay out the case for a complete overhaul of Canada’s degrading, unhealthy, discriminatory and expensive incarceration model of criminal justice for one that truly values public safety, making amends for wrongs, and rehabilitation. She practised criminal law for fifteen years in Ontario and Manitoba, and is the author of five books. She defended prisoners in nine different Kingston penitentiaries, spending hundreds of hours with inmates in these institutions.
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. You do not need to register to attend. ESG is an accessible facility.
