Canada's National Crime Prevention Centre has invested $14 million in Alberta since 2008. Among the initiatives: "culturally sensitive" programming for at-risk aboriginal youth.
Proponents of a traditional aboriginal approach say it helps troubled youth find a sense of belonging and pride. Critics say it’s not that meaningful in a modern world.
Aboriginal healing and traditional teaching for troubled members of that community - does it work? Or is it just politically correct?
We want to follow up on thoughts presented recently on our show by regular Crime Panelist Keith Spencer, a retired Assistant Alberta Jail Warden, Criminologist and 25 year Professor of Aboriginal Justice at the University of Alberta. Joining us, as well, is Don Langford, Executive Director of Métis Child and Family Services.
