Plaintiffs in court case to call for end to solitary confinement

Efrat Arbel, an professor at the Peter A. Allard School of Law at UBC who researches prison law, spoke to the Globe and Mail about a call in a B.C. Supreme Court case to end solitary confinement.

Arbel said a ruling in favour of the plaintiffs would confirm what scholars have been saying for years: that Canada’s segregation regime violates basic standards of rights protection.
