Recently we blogged about Whitehorse Bishop Gary Gordon, who has written a letter on behalf of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, asking the federal government to rethink its position on building more prison spaces and increasing the number of convicts dramatically.

Here are some additional church links and resources on the topic:

An interview in French on Radio-Canada with Laurent Champagne, president of the Canadian Church Council on Justice and Corrections board and a Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops appointee to the board.

A letter sent last fall to Minister of Public Safety Mr. Vik Toews by the National Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, the Rev. Susan Johnson.

A video recording of a discussion on the CBC-TV program Power and Politics with Father Thomas Rosica, CSB (beginning at 01:42:12).

An audio recording of an interview on the CBC Radio program As It Happens featuring Lorraine Berzins from the CCJC (beginning at 0:48 minutes).
