It is with great sadness that Nils Christie passed away on May 27, 2015. Mr Christie was a friend and Supporter of CoSA Ottawa. A few of us were blessed to dine with him after he spoke at a Restorative Justice event in Ottawa in 2011. He was a delightful and inspiring man! He will be sorely missed.
