RUNCIMAN STILL SEEKING INFORMATION ON PILOT PROJECT
8/9/2017 6:33:40 AM
Senator Bob Runciman is set to retire today (Aug. 9th), but he says that will not stop his request for information regarding a pilot project to treat mentally ill female offenders. In June 2016, he says he sought information from Correctional Service Canada relating to a project to provide treatment at the Brockville Mental Health Centre for women. An extension was sough by CSC according to Runciman and last he heard the report would be available in September. He feels the timing is suspect, but has had Independent Senator Kim Pate, file her own access to information request seeking information about the project. She says "The resistance of the CSC to respond to its legal and policy obligations cannot continue unchecked. I will certainly pursue the access to information requests launched by Senator Runciman". Runciman said in a press release he believes the project was set up to fail.
