 — Nov. 14, 200714 nov. 2007

“How can we, aboriginal and non-aboriginal people, walk together to heal our communities by addressing racism, poverty, and crime?” The 2007 Restorative Justice conference will gather to consider this question on November 14 at St. Mary’s RC Hall, 211 Avenue O. South in Saskatoon. The workshop runs from 1:20 to 9 p.m. Doors open at 1 p.m.

This workshop, hosted by the “Interchurch Restorative Justice Group,” will start by hearing reflections on the focus question from representatives of First Nations, Metis, and non-aboriginal communities. Reflections will continue in sharing circles. Following supper, reports will be heard from several groups actively trying to solve the problems under consideration. Speakers during the day will include:

Harry Lafond, former chief of the Muskeg Cree First Nation and member of the Office of the Treaty Commissioner;
Lynn Larosse from Metis Family and Community Justice Services, Inc.; and
Owen Fortosky, former Saskatoon City Councillor and principal of St. Mary’s Community School.
