Purchase tickets to the March 31 conversation on Canada's bail system
In the past 6 months, eight police officers have been killed while carrying out their duties in serving and protecting the public. These tragic killings of police officers have raised serious questions about the Canadian bail system, and whether targeted reforms to the bail system are required in gun-related cases. Recently, 13 Premiers wrote to the Prime Minister asking for reforms that would make it more difficult for individuals charged with gun-related offences to get out on bail.
In this presentation we will provide an overview of the bail system, how it works, the requirements to obtain bail, and some challenges faced within the system. We then discuss whether further targeted reform is necessary. We also discuss different areas of the Charter that are engaged in the way the bail system operates in Canada.

Purchase tickets to the April 20 conversation on Digital ID
Host Luke Neilson and lawyer Keith Pridgen will be "in conversation" on April 20 about Digital ID programs at the provincial and federal levels in Canada and how these programs are impacting privacy in Canada. As Canada continues its experiment with Digital ID, it is worth considering how these technologies, policies, and relationships between government and industry may pose risks to Canadians’ fundamental freedoms.
Keith Pridgen graduated cum laude from Florida State University College of Law in 2017 and has a decade of experience working in and adjacent to government in both Canada and the US. Long before he entered the legal profession, he was interested in civil liberties issues, stemming from his own free speech fight against the University of Calgary.
