SUMMARY: This newsletter opens with the editor commenting on the prisons overcrowding. There is a series of letters in response to one another: a critique on the prison system, and society failing prisoners, then the opinion that prisons are too luxurious and kind to prisoners, lastly with a callout to the second letter for stereotyping prisoners. A piece from the Calgary Sun argues for exiling prisoners and receives negative responses, including a letter to the attorney general stating that it is hate literature.
