PLS appears before the Senate Standing Committee on Human Rights
On August 11, 2018, Prisoners’ Legal Services appeared before the Senate Standing Committee on Human Rights for its study on the human rights of prisoners in Canada. We recommend that Canada invest in community-based alternatives to incarceration, and to provide trauma-informed mental health services to prisoners with mental health issues. We call on government to abolish solitary confinement. You can read our written brief here.
