The Criminal Justice System on Trial

October 2, 2023

So, episode 136 – a new record.  But you know that right? Because you subscribe to the show and have already rated and reviewed the podcast – right? You should.

We are joined by Benjamin Perrin to talk about his new book, Indictment: The Criminal Justice System on Trial. Ben is a professor at the University of British Columbia, Peter A. Allard School of Law and national best-selling author. He has served in the Prime Minister’s Office as in-house legal counsel and lead policy advisor on criminal justice and public safety, although his views on criminal justice have changed juuuust a little bit since then.

Michael also rants about the governments new bail laws that were rushed through the House of Commons with little debate and no study.
