Prison advocates are raising the alarm about appalling conditions at the Central Nova Scotia Correctional Facility in Burnside and the East Coast Forensic Hospital in Dartmouth. Things are made even worse by the pandemic. We speak with Dr. Adeline Iftene and lawyer Claire McNeil, both members of the East Coast Prison Justice Society.
This looks great! Book launch of Professor Adelina Iftene’s first book, Punished for Aging: Vulnerability, Rights, and Access to Justice in Canadian Penitentiaries. The book tackles the challenges that older individuals in Canadian penitentiaries face and their struggles for justice while they’re living their “golden years” behind bars.
