Canadian Determination …

Monday, January 31st, 2011

This morning, I tore myself away from things intellectual and virtual, and headed to prison!  Or, to a demo in front of a prison … the former location of a successful prison farm where inmates produced their own milk and eggs with enough left over to send to other correctional facilities!  The mean-spirited (I mean that!) Harper government has arbitrarily cancelled all six, internationally respected prison farms … So, it’s warm clothes, extra thick hat and mitts, in order to stand with placards demanding the return of the farms.  The cold is the least of our worries right now in Canada!
