CDAS Intervenes in Successful Challenge to Solitary Confinement

The BC Civil Liberties Association and John Howard Society successfully challenged the Federal government's solitary confinement practice, which was held to be unconstitutional pursuant to s. 15 of the Charter. Justice Peter Leask found that the laws surrounding segregation in prison discriminate against Aboriginal and mentally ill inmates.

CDAS is proud to have intervened in the case. Special thanks to Tom Arbogast and Alex Ballantyne, who represented CDAS.
