    Default Canada's Oldest, Most Notorious Prison To Close After 150 Years

    Kingston Penn is going to be closed down within two years. The monstrous facility has been, and still is, home to some of the worst criminals in Canadian history.
    Cost-effectiveness is the reason for the closing.

As soon as this proclamation was issued, the horse was returned: a testimony to both Alexander's devotion to his horse and the degree of fear he inspired among the natives." - Arrian The Campaigns Of Alexander

    Critics are arguing that this is an early move towards privatization, which the Conservatives have long been rallying for.

    Privatization of prisons is one of the worst ideas ever... We've already had problems in my area, with NON-privatized prisons, with judges basically throwing people in the slammer for shit like j-walking or spitting gum on the sidewalks because they get kickbacks for it. This sort of situation will only get worse with privatization.
