We recently posted about the report released by the Criminalization and Punishment Education Project (CPEP) about the 148 calls it received in the first month operating their JAIL / Jail Accountability and Information Line . Sarah Speight (CPEP member and uOttawa student) and Souheil Benslimane (CPEP member) were all over the news today discussing the report and the issues denounced by prisoners at the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre (OCDC). Listen to them on CBC’s All In A Day, or read what they have to say on the CBC News website or in the Ottawa Citizen. Even the Halifax Examiner mentions the hotline today and argues that such a hotline is needed in Halifax as well.
