Bail Panel

On March 13, 2023, Windsor Law Professor Danardo Jones provided testimony before the House of Commons standing committee on justice and human rights, demonstrating his expertise on the bail system. The exchange between Professor Jones and CPC MP Larry Brock showcases much larger issues around anti-Black law and unconscious bias. On Monday, March 20, 2023, the TLRJN hosted a bail panel to continue the discussion surrounding systematic racism in our bail system.

Hosted by Professor Jones, speakers discussed the current bail system in Canada, and its effects on marginalized communities. In addition to how factors such as race, class, and gender influence bail decisions, and bail reform. Panelists included:

  • The Honourable John Joy
  • Dr. Nicole Myers
  • Dr. Asad Kiyani
  • Sushanna Harris
  • Professor Jillian Rogin
  • Bobby Russon
