Talking about parole . . . (2011)
After years of trying I finally entered another phase of my life. The National Parole Board granted me a full parole today (1/18/2011). No, they have not lost their minds; they saw in me a changed person, whose mission is to create change in kids at risk. I cannot be stopped and others will come to my aid to make the world a safer place, one misguided soul at a time.
In this video its 1996 and I had moved to a Hamilton half-way house and was appearing in a variety of media in the GTA. I was talking about my experience in the prison system and my unique role as a prison TV talk show host. Appearing on the Jane Hawtin “Live” show, a phone-in program seen coast to coast in the 1990’s could be an intimidating and stressful experience. The show dealt mainly with dark, sensitive and controversial issues. On this particular episode, me, Jane Hawtin and Rick Hanson, a Calgary police superintendent, debate whether the parole system works. It did today!
