TORTURE AND TERROR IN THE CANADIAN JAILS



The human rights organizations are keeping the Canadian prisoners in a state of total being forgotten and covering up the infamous methods of torture practiced by the workers of the Minister of Correctional Services. The intention of the government is to use the torture of hell, to traumatize and re-traumatize convicted prisoners, victims of the state persecution, people who have fallen under the cracks of immigration legislation, and uncountable vulnerable victims who are wrongly convicted. The crimes against humanity, torture committed by the guards in the Canadian jails remains crimes without punishment.  Due to the corruption of the Justice System the jails tortures are enjoying complete impunity.
"The system not only failed Adam Capay. It buried him alive" - Michael's essay
 

The United States has Guantanamo Bay. Ontario has the Thunder Bay Jail 
witnessed similar acts of sadism and brutality at the West Detention Centre.

Not much difference, really, when it comes to solitary confinement and the application of a torture technique.
An innocent man had been locked up in a tiny cell in that institution for four years. To be clear: he had not had a trial, he had not been convicted of anything, he had not been sentenced for a crime. In the eyes of the law, he is an innocent man. And he had been locked up in solitary confinement for four years.
The light in his cell was on 24 hours a day, a torture technique used to destabilize prisoners inGuantanamo Bay. (Research Every Friday at the West Detention Centre)  
The young man's name is Adam Capay. He is a 24-year-old Aboriginal of the Lac Seul First Nation in Northwestern Ontario. In 2012, at age 19, he was serving time in the Thunder Bay Correctional Centre. There was a violent confrontation with another inmate. The man died and Mr. Capay was charged with first degree murder.  
Mr. Capay had been held in solitary without a trial for 52 months. This is 100 times longer than the threshold the United Nations considers torture — 15 days. On top of which, the Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that a delay of 30 months or longer between being charged and being tried is a violation of an accused's rights under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
