Former Inmate Calls for Inmates’ Early Release

Former Inmate Calls for Inmates’ Early Release Following Outbreak – A former inmate at the South Camp Adult Correctional Centre is urging the government to release inmates who are nearing the end of their sentence due to the conditions at the prison.

The former inmate who was released in the midst of an outbreak there, days before COVID-19 claimed the life of another inmate, says the South Camp facility is overcrowded and social distancing is impossible. There are almost 60 active cases in the prison population.
