OPSEU President, Warren (Smokey) Thomas said that Corrections Miniser Naqvi seemed "shocked to see the deplorable conditions inmates were living in — and correctional officers were working under. Clearly, something had to be done, and done quickly.”
"This is a major issue not just for Ontario, but for communities across Canada. It's time for us to act," says Public Services Foundation of Canada board member
Ottawa (16 Dec 2015) - In the wake of a number of dangerous events in Ontario provincial correctional facilities over the past week, the Public Services Foundation of Canada (PSFC) is reiterating its calls for action.
The B.C. Government and General Employees' Union (BCGEU/NUPGE) report, Choose Children, highlights deficiencies in youth and family services across the province.
Government is meant to act as the prudent parent of all children in its care. The political leadership of our province is failing to recognize their responsibility." — Stephanie Smith, BCGEU President.
