    Policing the Food Theft Crisis in Winnipeg

    Policing the Food Theft Crisis in Winnipeg is undertaking a comprehensive examination and analysis of how the food theft ‘crisis’ has evolved, circulated, and impacted Indigenous residents in Winnipeg. This research pursues the following research questions: To what extent has the ‘crisis’ of food theft and shoplifting been narrativized in the media alongside Winnipeg’s ‘meth crisis’? How have Indigenous residents responded to increasing instances of pre-criminalization and surveillance that result from a perceived food theft crisis? What are the possible legal and social implications of a perceived food theft ‘crisis’?
