Hunger strike ends at Regina Provincial Correctional Centre
CTV News Regina, March 3, 2015
A hunger strike at Regina Provincial Correctional Centre has ended.
Fifteen inmates at the jail had been refusing to eat in protest since Monday morning.
The hunger strike has since ended, a spokesperson for the province confirmed Tuesday afternoon.
That comes after several concessions were made, including giving inmates $10 more per week to spend on canteen items. A microwave has also been added to the unit where the protest took place.
Inmates still won’t be allowed to use gym equipment or go outdoors. However, they will soon be allowed to smudge in a special unit that was planned well before the protest.
