(October 17, 2016)

Queen’s University researcher Priscilla Ferrazzi, Law’91, LLM’07 (PhD’15) says Inuit culture is a key consideration when planning criminal court programs for people with mental illness in Nunavut.

For them, being here in a new stadium is a reminder of past lessons learned, and what football is really all about.
