KJIPUKTUK (Halifax) – These rare and heart-wrenching photos were taken during a recent fact-finding visit to East Coast prisons by Senators Nancy Hartling, Wanda Thomas Bernard, Kim Pate and Jane Cordy, members of the Senate Committee on Human Rights.
There are many more photos where these came from, check them out on the Senate website. That’s also where the captions for these photos originate.
If you can, please support the Nova Scotia Advocate so that it can continue to cover issues such as poverty, racism, exclusion, workers’ rights and the environment in Nova Scotia. A paywall is not an option, since it would exclude many readers who don’t have any disposable income at all. We rely entirely on one-time donations and a tiny but mighty group of dedicated monthly sustainers.
