Op-ed co-authored by Professor Piché says it's time for transparency on the plans for jail expansion in Ottawa

An op-ed by the Criminalization and Punishment Education Project's (CPEP) Aaron Doyle and Justin Piché (Associate Professor) published today in the Ottawa Sun has revealed new details about the Government of Ontario's plan to build a new and bigger jail in Ottawa. Through their research, they uncovered the name of the project - the "Ottawa Correctional Complex", its projected cost of $500 million to $1 billion, and that it'll be delivered via a costly and ineffecient private-public partnership. The authors also demand that the Government of Ontario be more transparent with the general public about their jail expansion plans. Click here to sign CPEP's #NOPE / No On Prison Expansion in Ottawa petition demanding a halt to the new Ottawa jail project and public consultation on alternative solutions.
