A candlelight vigil will be held in Prince Albert this evening to call attention to a recent court decision in Melfort.


Twenty-six year-old Dean Edmondson was sentenced to two years less-a-day of house arrest for the sexual assault of a twelve year-old Cree girl.


That ruling has generated a lot of anger throughout the area and also sparked fierce debate about the importance of protecting children’s rights.


As a result the Coalition for Judicial Reform has organized a twenty-five hour camp-in that will take

place at Kinseman park beginning at five o’clock today. Everyone is welcome.
