Canada’s Wrongful Conviction Inquiries: Assuaging the National Guilt

The nightmare of wrongful conviction is not uncommon in Canada. Gary Botting, lawyer and legal scholar, will discuss the primary causes of wrongful conviction on Monday, March 21, in Victoria, BC.

Dr. Botting’s new book, Wrongful Conviction in Canadian Law, the first of its kind, describes how the Canadian legal system has handled miscarriages of justice over recent decades. His talk suggests much needed improvements to protect Canadians from the risk of wrongful conviction.

Where: The Odd Fellows Hall at 1315 Douglas Street, Victoria, BC

When: 7:00 p.m., Monday, March 21

Admission is free but you must reserve your place as seating is limited. Please email mediageode@gmail.com to book your seat. Refreshments available, by donation.

Gary Botting, PhD (University of Alberta), LLM, PhD in Law (UBC), whose preferred areas of practice include extradition and wrongful conviction, is considered an expert on extradition law in Canada, having published four books on the subject. He has also written and lectured extensively on government restrictions on civil liberties and human rights.

He says, “I believe strongly that ideas, however unsavory, should be tested in the free marketplace of ideas, not in the criminal courts.”

In 2010, Dr. Botting published Wrongful Conviction in Canadian Law (Butterworths LexisNexis) focusing on and cross-referencing the recommendations of all of the wrongful conviction inquiries ever conducted in Canada including those of Donald Marshall, Jr., Guy Paul Morin, Thomas Sophonow, James Driskell, Ronald Dalton, Gregory Parsons, Randy Druken—and David Milgaard, who wrote the foreword to this book.
