Winnipeg lawyer calls out Conservatives for eliminating GPS tracking program

A Winnipeg lawyer is calling the province’s decision to phase out electronic monitoring for convicts a step backwards.

“It’s disappointing, it’s disturbing, it’s a step backwards and it should not happen,” Defence lawyer Jay Prober said.

Justice Minister Heather Stefanson told Global News the Conservative government plans to completely phase out the GPS monitoring program over the next few months.
