The Globe and Mail reports that BC Corrections has lifted its ban on the Journal of Prisoners on Prisons

The Journal of Prisoners on Prisons features peer-reviewed articles written by current and former prisoners.  Published by the University of Ottawa Press and housed in the Department of Criminology, BC Corrections prevented prisoners under its control from accessing the publication from August 2016 to January 2017.  The ban was rescinded following informal exchanges between BC Corrections and journal editorial staff, including Professor Justin Piché, Vancouver-based Prisoners’ Legal Services and other intervenors.  To learn more about the ban, read the article in the Globe and Mail.

“I’m not glad that the ban was handed down in the first place, but I’m glad that this was able to be resolved reasonably” - Justin Piché
