This Week

Environmental leadership

From being the only jurisdiction in North America without an energy efficiency policy to showing more environmental leadership than any other oil-producing region on the globe, Alberta has come a long way in a short time, says Andrew Read of the Pembina Institute.

Restorative justice

“Re-humanizing relationships and healing hurt are no small tasks, yet that is what restorative justice seeks to do,” writes Dianne Woloschuk. “Its underlying principle is that crime is an act against another person and the community, not simply a violation of the law, and that crime has both an individual and a social dimension of responsibility.”

An English cardinal has apologized for the “hurt caused” to young unmarried mothers pressured by church agencies in the mid-20th century to surrender their children for adoption.
