Cancelled, to Be Rescheduled: Truscott Lecture in Justice: What Does the Future of Justice Look Like?

Monday, March 12, 2018 @ 6:30 pm

Event Navigation

The College of Social and Applied Human Science presents the 2018 Truscott Lecture in Justice with guest speaker Senator Kim Pate.

Senator Pate will present her talk “What does the future of justice look like?” addressing the future of Canada’s legal and penal system. All are welcome to attend. A reception will follow at the University Club.


The Truscott Lecture in Justice 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.
