About 60 people showed up at the GEM Theatre on Thursday night (Jan. 29) for a viewing of the film Healing Rivers and a discussion afterwards. The film is a documentary about restorative justice and features interviews with several different subjects with a wide range of experiences for First Nations to prisoners to university professors to provincial court judges.

After the film, the movie producers, Larry Moore and Cathie Douglas, as well as local RCMP Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison and Boundary Restorative Justive program coordinator Richard Tarnoff panelled a discussion about the film and the role of restorative justice in the community.
