Philosophers' Café – Inside Canada’s Prisons: Punishment or Rehabilitation?

Simon Fraser University's Continuing Studies and the Library provide comfortable surroundings for vibrant street level discussions on the burning issues of the day. No formal philosophy training required; real-life experience desired. We'll provide the coffee; bring your own mug if you're able!


Do you think rehabilitation can be accomplished in our current incarceration system? What challenges does our system face?

Please note that planned guest, Neil MacLean, retired Correctional Service Canada manager, will be unable to attend.


Thursday, May 17, 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m., Welsh Hall
