...dry, flaking skin is the least of their problems...
The "Toronto 18" trio being held in solitary confinement have turned down offers to leave their cells for time in the Don Jail exercise yard.That's certainly not the way the fuzzy-bunny left is spinning it...
The Toronto Sun has learned the three inmates were each offered yard time more than 100 times this year. They have only accepted offers to go outside a handful of times, a source familiar with the case, who spoke to the Sun on condition of anonymity, said.
Civil liberties groups claimed the men, who can't be identified because of a publication ban, have developed health problems from lack of sunlight.Hey, Chantal... maybe they should just apply for a transfer to Guantanamo... plenty of sunshine there.
Speakers from the Presumption of Innocence Project claimed the men were given such little time outside they had developed a vitamin D deficiency and their skin was flaking due to lack of sunlight.
Project spokesman Chantal Sundaram said yesterday that relatives maintain the men have not been given a chance to go outside since April.
When asked if the inmates have denied yard time, Sundaram was adamant they have not refused to leave their cells. "That's not happened," she said. "They haven't had the opportunity to deny it."
