Women in Criminal Law, Jail Conditions, and More Pot
So episode 30 - a new record. But you know that right? Because you subscribe to the show on iTunes and have already rated and reviewed the podcast- right?
Women in the Law
This week we dive into the Criminal Lawyers' Associations report on the unique problems faced by women who practice criminal law.
You can also check out Emilie on the CBC documentary The Motherload for more on the challenges faced by working women.
Nothing is more depressing than the state of Canada's jails - so why not talk about it. This week the Office of the Correctional Investigator published their annual report. It was not good - not good at all.
Last week a British Columbia court struct down the minimum sentences that apply growing more than 6 pot plants. Not a surprising decision but a reminder that we still have bad laws on the books. Even more surprising is that our current Prime Minister - Justin Trudeau - voted for the law in 2009.
We also have some new art - it is still new because it is way easier to just copy and past this section each week - from an awesome young designer Parker Mazerolle - serious he is crazy good - go check out his work.
