Petition 3023 was tabled before Parliament earlier this month. Petition 3023 calls on Parliament to end the practice of abusive solitary confinement, implement measures adding more transparency within federal prisons and ensure the rights of prisoners are safeguarded.
The JHSC is now launching a Facebook event to draw attention to the government’s response. This Facebook Event will serve as a campaign expressing the need for Parliament to respond thoughtfully, and with action.
From now until the deadline for a response, June 26, 2021, the John Howard Society of Canada will share information about abusive practices of solitary confinement and ways for the general public to hold their elected officials accountable.
We’d be very eager if anyone can attend or contribute.
