The John Howard Society of Manitoba, Inc. will release their report:
Bill C-10: The Truth About Consequences
This report was produced with the collaboration of Ogijiita Pimatiswin Kinamatwin, The Community Education Development Association, The Canadian CED Network, Maintain the Momentum and Make Poverty History Manitoba.
The Federal Government’s Omnibus Crime Bill C-10, if passed, will cost the province of Manitoba an estimated $90 million a year. The vast majority of these funds will be spent on locking more people up for longer, a strategy that fails to create safer communities. Strategies that focus on prevention, not punishment, succeed. Our plan focuses on investing that $90 million in four key areas: housing, education, employment and mental health/addictions.
Please join us for the release of this report.
