About this Event

The Fifth Estate will be in Regina on Thursday, September 26 to host a town hall looking at solutions to Regina's gang problem. The town hall will be incorporated into the work of The Fifth Estate’s investigative journalism exposing the current impacts and root causes of Indigenous gangs on Canadian cities.

CBC host, Duncan McCue will moderate an open discussion as we explore the topic and issue around Regina’s gang violence.

We are inviting members of the community, the police, elected leaders, experts, elders and the general public to engage in an informed discussion that will become part of a one-hour Fifth Estate documentary.

The Fifth Estate will also screen a short and powerful documentary in Regina called Operation Ceasefire - a solution that's been used widely in the U.S. and in parts of Europe. It was born from a gang crisis facing Boston in the 1990s. The program has been credited with reducing gang violence almost everywhere it's been used, but has never been tried in Canada. Two of the people behind its success will be present to talk about it.

You’ll also have an opportunity to share your views and ask questions.
