Murder in Canada
0.5 Credit

The focus of this course is the nature of “everyday” homicide within Canada. Students will learn about Canadian homicide through the use of historical case materials from the National Archives, statistics collected by the federal government and through an exploration of contemporary Canadian cases. Students will also learn about the basic processes which underlie the investigation and prosecution of homicide cases.
