11:30 – 12: 30 P.M.

St. Paul, AB. Portage College, VC Room

Presenter: Leslie Keith, Library Coordinator, Alberta Law Libraries

This session will look at the tools which any citizen with access to an internet connection may find answers to their legal questions. On the way we can look at some interesting laws which are on the books – for example did you know that it is illegal to tell fortunes for money unless you are sincere? This is in your modern criminal code – section 365 … We will look at free websites and check out some interesting laws. Since we elect the people who make the laws — we need to follow up and see what is being done on our behalf!

Lac La Biche – Family Violence Awareness Month Sessions

You are invited to join us for:

Family Violence Awareness Month

Public Legal Education Sessions

November 29, 2012

Portage College Room 143

Lac La Biche, Alberta

 

9:30 – Noon                        The Cycle of Violence and Forms of Abuse

Families and community members can play a key role in preventing family violence. People impacted by family violence usually turn first to those they trust. This is usually extended family, friends, neighbours, co-workers or spiritual leaders. After that, people may reach out to a service agency or seek out government services such as police, courts and child protection.

Families dealing with violence are often not aware of the wide range of services that could help them. If they do know, they may hesitate to come forward. Other community members can help support them to connect to sources of help. Please join us for this special PLE session and learn about the family violence warning signs, what to do and where to get help.

Presenter:       Trina McDonald, Family Violence Team Lead

Hope Haven Women’s Shelter

1:00 – 4:00              Family Violence and the Law

Domestic violence can occur as isolated major incidents or as a number of minor incidents that don’t seem serious on their own, but together form an abusive pattern of behaviour. All forms of domestic violence are hurtful.  That being said, some forms are against the Criminal Law of Canada while others are not. Please join us to learn more about Family Violence and the Law.

Presenter:       Melody Littell, Program Coordinator
