"Please call the Central North Correctional Centre to condemn their new book policy which only allows inmates 1 book per month if the title is pre-approved by the Superintendent! Please circulate widely!!
CALLOUT FOR SUPPORT -> Support access to books for imprisoned people
Call Central North Correctional Centre: 705-549-9470 (Superintendent) and tell them how absurd and inappropriate restricted access to books is.
If you're not satisfied with the response, and/or have the time to make more calls, call the Ombudsman: 1-800-263-1830 and the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services: 1-866-517-0571 (toll free)."

I am not a person Indigenous to this land. I am a settler imprisoned in a colonial institution, the Central North Correctional Centre, commonly referred to as the Penetang Prison, a provincial prison built on Anishinabek land. This superjail in Penetanguishene is located by Georgian Bay’s Penetang Harbor. Across the harbor is Awenda Provincial Park, which is the current site of the Oshkimaadziig Camp, just over 12 kilometres away by foot or vehicle. As we enter the winter season behind these walls, the camp enters its first winter in the park, reoccupying and reclaiming sacred ground. This winter too, across the country, the Idle No More movement is gaining ground. Winters outside are cold and hard, I strongly encourage people to support the camp via funds, supplies and solidarity. This is a call out to support the Oshkimaadziig Camp.

This interview with imprisoned anti-capitalist and solidarity activist Alex Hundert looks into his article "Getting out of jail in the age of austerity" which, among other things gets into discussion about the McGuinty attacks on social services and the plan to cut funding to the community start up and maintenance benefit (CSUMB). These cuts will have enormous impacts on prisoners who will be unable to pay first and last months rent on getting out of prison, and are more likely to end up on the streets and back in jail.
