StarMetro Toronto - - BIG OPINIONS -

OTTAWA—PUB­LIC Safety Min­is­ter Ralph Goodale is mak­ing it harder for fed­eral prison­ers to be trans­ferred to Indigenous “heal­ing lodges” if they’re serv­ing long sen­tences. Prison­ers won’t be el­i­gi­ble for trans­fers un­til they’re into the “prepa­ra­tion for re­lease” phases of their sen­tences.
