Last week, Joyce Milgaard received an honorary doctor of Law degree at the University of Manitoba. She spoke at the Duckworth Center to an audience of 2500 people, encouraging them to support an independent panel that would review claims of wrongful conviction. England, Australia and New Zealand already have such boards but the United States and Canada are far behindin that respect. This is something that AIDWYC (The Association in Defense of the Wrongly Convicted) has advocated for years.
It's about time that Joyce received some accolades for her years of labor after the way that she has been attacked in the Inquiry for forcing the police and justice system to do its job.
