Letter to the Editor – Correctional Facility


Dear Editor,

I found the open letter to Premier Doug Ford by Rodger Parnell very interesting and am most inclined to agree. It seems to be very much in sync with a letter I recently sent about the opinions of two associate professors in two Ottawa Universities.

Mr. Parnell states that the current system falls short of meeting full Charter rights! Also of great mention is “to restoring the integrity of our Justice system itself”. Personally, I cannot imagine “being put in a small concrete cell behind locked steel-bar doors, with bare minimum furnishing and no privacy or television”. Mental torture?

Also news to me is that the author states that the “site” is on un-ceded territory, to which the Algonquin Nation claim title. Neither have I seen a hospital with coiled barbed wire protruding above its roof line! This vision is not heartwarming. Sincere thanks for this letter. It is greatly appreciated.
