This week we broadcasted at 6pm instead of 7pm because of CFRC Special Broadcasting for Aboriginal Day. We bring you audio from a talk given by Catherine Latimer, Executive Director of the John Howard Society, and Lawrence de Silva, ex-prisoner living in Kingston, as part of the Guelph Summer Lecture Series in May 2017. They discuss prison life and what could be possible with the current Senate investigation into the human rights of prisoners.
