News Release: The Government Must Act to End Abusive Solitary Confinement11/30/2021
Today is the two-year anniversary of the implementation of the Structured Intervention Units (SIUs) in federal Canadian prisons. The implementation of the SIUs was meant to mark the end of solitary confinement in Canada – but these past two years have shown otherwise. Solitary confinement continues in Canada. Two years on, a coalition of organizations and academics continue to call for the elimination of abusive solitary confinement in Canada. Today, they also release a report with insights from respected and recognized advocates, scholars, lawyers, and politicians on the ongoing practice of solitary confinement in Canada.
