Gender Inequality in Alberta Courts

Alberta Primetime aired this panel discussion about Gender Inequality in our Justice System.   The first segment was in part a continuation of last segment in Oct 2009 on MP Maurice VELLACOTT's PMB C422 - amending Divorce Act to include presumption of Equal Shared Parenting.

Further discussion with former Family Law Lawyer Grant BROWN, University of Alberta Sociologist Dr. Amy KALER and academic lawyer Nick BALA from Queen's University in Kingston ON.   The debate in my opinion did not really establish anything.

I invite you to visit my site devoted to raising awareness on this growing problem:
