Inside the Trudeau government’s own-goal on solitary confinement

THE BIG STORY | posted Tuesday, Sep 1st, 2020

Since then, a lot has changed in the world. But it seems not a lot has changed in our prison system. And if anything had really changed, we likely wouldn’t know, because the government won’t tell us. It won’t even tell the panel it appointed to watch over its work. Why?
