Another hunger strike at Barton Street jail

The CBC is reporting there is another hunger strike underway at the Baron Street jail. The Ministry of the Solicitor-General has confirmed that some inmates are refusing meals. The two main complaints are a lack of soap and no access to reading material. This is the third hunger strike in recent months. The Ministry issued a statement that reads: “”Soap is provided to all inmates,” she wrote. Mail continues to be delivered, inmates can borrow books and they have access to “regular yard time.”
