What's it like to be an inmate in a Saskatchewan correctional centre during a pandemic? We heard from Cory Cardinal, founder of Inmates for Humane Conditions who spoke about his own recent experience in the Saskatoon Correctional Centre, we talked to Pierre Hawkins from John Howard Society about the use of remand in Sask. and why it's used so frequently, we spoke to Julie Paul, whose son contracted COVID-19 while on remand at the Regina Correctional Centre and we heard from a representative of the correctional workers union.
