People from around the world will be in Saskatoon this week for the 2018 National Restorative Justice Symposium happening at the Delta Bessborough today (mon) and tomorrow. Helen Smith-McIntyre, Chair of the Saskatchewan Restorative Justice Network says people who are in conflict, have been harmed by criminal acts or have committed a crime, the goal is for Smith-McIntyre and her colleagues to help support those people so similar incidents don’t happen again. Smith-McIntyre adds restorative justice is a philosophy and a respectful way of being with people. She says people from anywhere from New Zealand to Montreal will be attending the Symposium and they will all bring their own perspective on restorative justice. Chief Troy Cooper, Saskatoon Tribal Council Chief Mark Arcand and Mayor Charlie Clark will also be a part of the event. The three will all take part in a panel discussion tomorrow (tues) that will touch on the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action.
