Whatever happened to... "One People, One Law"?
One inmate named Darcy, who murdered his in-laws and his wife, says, “I'm not going to let their deaths be in vain.”And while a typical Canadian would likely be angered and appalled by this taxpayer funded adventure in social engineering... English film-maker Hugh Brody is simply thrilled to pieces.
Murderers, rapists and contract killers, they have spent much of their adult lives behind bars. But this place, known as Kwikwexwelhp, has no bars. It barely has fences.
An author, anthropologist and filmmaker who has been shuttling between England, his birthplace, and Canada for 30 years, Brody initially asked permission to visit Kwikwexwelhp and talk to some of the younger inmates.**********
What he found when he arrived startled him: “I was immediately surprised by the openness,” he recalls. “Not just the beauty of the setting, but the way you couldn't tell who was on staff and who was imprisoned.”

Just ask convicted Toronto cop-killer Craig Munro...
Thursday's hearing will take place at his minimum-security prison, Kwikwexwelhp Healing Village, which puts aboriginal spirituality at the centre of its rehabilitation program.*
Munro is not aboriginal but has converted to native teachings.
