Not only is Mr. Gaucher a retired criminology professor, but he also did time in one of the federal prisons he talks about. So, we have a unique perspective as he takes us on a history lesson of Canadian prisons from the twenties through the penal reform era of the forties and sixties. Robert discusses former prisoner rights groups based inside and outside prisons and how some of the well-known activists, like the late, great Claire Culhane were instrumental in raising public awareness and in penal reform. Robert says that it was Culhane who ignited his metamorphosis to prison activist and fundraiser for social issues. Mr. Gaucher gives an articulate, thought-provoking insight at a pivotal time in prison life and change. Worth listening to, again and again. So throw on those headphones and enjoy!
