--Your message was -- use of solitary confinement--------Hi, Recently Canadians have learned of the use of solitary confinement in the case of Adam Capay in Ontario. Recently we have discovered that he is not the only individual subject to this torture. http://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/52-months-of-torture-and-the-4-men-responsible/ Fifty-two months of torture and the four men responsible Scott Gilmore on the case of Adam Capay, and how the province of Ontario allowed his horrific torture to happen Scott Gilmore October 26, 2016 Renu Mandhane, Ontario’s chief human rights commissioner has been trying to find out. So far, she has identified 1,383 cases of prisoners being held in solitary confinement for more than 15 days. Twelve of these people have been subjected to this for more than a year. ********* I am curious if Alberta has regulations with reference to solitary confinement use. I am aware of one case of abuse which ended with death --the case of Edward Snowshoe: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/north/edward-snowshoe-spent-162-days-in-segregation-before-suicide-1.2703542 Edward Snowshoe spent 162 days in segregation before suicide Alberta inquiry finds N.W.T.-born Edward Snowshoe 'fell through the cracks' CBC News Posted: Jul 11, 2014 6:39 AM CT Last Updated: Jul 11, 2014 10:41 AM CT *** Can you indicate to me the current regulations pertaining to the use of solitary confinement for citizens in Alberta? Can you tell me how long citizens who are segregated are kept in solitary confinement? Can you provide me with the data on the numbers of prisoners who experience torture of this sort on a yearly basis? Who is in charge of the system of administration of solitary confinement? Is it the Justice Minister or can any prison administrator decide to use this tool of torture? Who can we complain to if we believe the use of this tool is inappropriate? At this time are you also able to tell me when I will get the fatality inquiries I have requested of citizens who died in police custody in Alberta as well as the deaths of any other patients who left hospitals in Alberta to kill themselves? Thanks for your assistance. Sincerely, Julie Ali
