University of Toronto professor Anthony Doob, who was appointed to the Order of Canada in 2014 for his research on criminal justice, will reflect on criminal justice policy during the Conservative years and how it might change under the new Liberal government.
The lecture series is part of the Truscott Initiative launched at U of G in 2009 to commemorate the struggles of Guelph resident Steven Truscott and his family.
Truscott is known across Canada for his decades-long battle to prove his innocence after the 1959 murder of his schoolmate Lynne Harper. He was wrongly convicted of the crime at age 14 and spent years in prison before his release in 1969. He was acquitted by the Ontario Court of Appeal in 2007.
The Truscott Initiative aims to improve understanding of the nation’s complex criminal justice system, and to highlight how criminal justice intersects with other policy areas and broader conceptions of justice.
