Anyone who thinks the PM of Canada should be in charge of where each prisoner resides should get their head examined or move to a country like Russia where the head of state personally jails people. Our corrections system is separate from political system for a reason. #cdnpoli
It’s a horrific crime Terri-Lynne McClintic did, however every person is in prison for a reason but it was the Harper government that agreed healing lodges were appropriate in rehabilitation. Every prisoner in those healing lodges has done something illegal. Not just her.
Trial by media is an incredible thing when you use an emotional story like the rape and murder of an 8 year old, but this was a decision by corrections Canada and the government has decided to review it (which is appropriate) but not interfere — which is their duty.
Terri-Lynne McClintic was moved to a medium security prison from a maximum penitentiary when Harper was PM. When was the outrage there? This is politicizing something that is not political or partisan and using a murder for cheap political points.
Oh and by the way, the prison Terri-Lynne McClintic was in prior didn’t have those symbolic “bars” either. The women’s prisons have an apartment/room/door style model; so using the description of the healing lodge to complain about it doesn’t make sense either. #smh
