ADVOCATING FOR CORRECTION IN CORRECTIONS

Our group was formed by bereaved families whose loved ones died of unnatural causes at Elgin Middlesex Detention Centre. Together we seek changes in Ontario's Correction system so others do not suffer in the same way.

 

THE ISSUES

 

OVERCROWDING

Ontario falls far short of the United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners. Facilities built i many decades ago for much smaller inmate populations now routinely house three times their original designed capacity.  The less powerful inmates must sleep on the floor. The noise, the filth, the plumbing and ventilation issues are exacerbated by anxious inmates forced to live virtually on top of one another.
