Crime and Punishment
A Look at Part of the Recent Toronto Star Investigative Reporting Series
Keynote Speaker Award Winning Toronto Star Journalist Jim Rankin

Join us for an extraordinary evening with award winning Toronto Star Journalist Jim Rankin. His recent investigative reporting series “ Crime and Punishment” with fellow journalists reveals some startling information on the “M8V” postal code area. As well, the series uncovers statistics that prove investing large amounts of money into more and bigger prisons has failed to reduce crime. In fact the research shows skyrocketing taxpayers costs to build more and bigger prisons, has prompted some American states to change their policy and strategy, investing instead into sectors that address the root causes of crime, poverty.

Join us to become better informed to make better decisions that impact the safety of our community.
