Tori Stafford's Dad on tv. His pain is palpable. I feel so much for him and his family. And yet... The CPC have exploited this family's grief for partisan gain. Like many Canadians, he doesn't understand how our system works. #cdnpoli #ToriStafford 1/25
We do not have a system where the injured party can get "5 minutes alone" with the perpetrator. We do not have a system where politicians can hand-pick cases for special treatment or special punishment. 2/25
We have a rule of law, based on laws that have been developed and evolved over time, according to social mores and values, as these evolve over time. We used to have capital punishment. We used to hang people. And then, we were no longer comfortable with that solution. 3/25

Thread) I worked for an organization in my 20s that ran two Indigenous healing centres. One for men and one for women.The work they did and do with inmates is amazing.
The purpose of these centres in part is preparing people to be released #CdnPoli @CPC_HQ @liberal_party
The recidivism rate for those at these centres was incredibly low in part because of the intensive Indigenous focused programming to work thru the trauma that had led these men and women to commit crime. It’s hard work and they had to want to do the work to heal
Some centres allow the female inmates to have their children with them. This is designed to give these children the opportunity to bond with their parent in infanthood and again prepare the inmate for parenting thru courses and support.
