Justin Piché and Kevin Walby publish an op-ed on the Kingston Penitentiary tours

Justin Piché and his colleague Kevin Walby publish an op-ed in the Toronto Star on the Kingston Penitentiary tours. The authors argue that "When such 'carceral retasking' takes place, penal tourism sites often perform ideological work that positions punishment practices as part of the past, while advancing the notion that imprisonment today is more humane when in reality brutalities behind bars continue."
