The Harper government is shuttering the Kingston Penitentiary, a maximum security facility in eastern Ontario that has housed some of Canada's most notorious criminals.If anything, it's the Liberals who are driving the need for more prison beds.
It’s also closing down the medium-security Leclerc Institution in Laval, Que.
The budget contained a line that said: “The government has not built a single new prison since 2006 and has no intention of building any new prisons.”

Dateline TORONTO: Organised "death squads" in your streets...
Poor Peter Lumanglas... thank goodness CBC was there to speak for him... this unfortunate victim was...
"pulled over by Const. Jeff Blair on Sunday evening, leading to an interaction".I mean, the nerve of those traffic cops... pulling people over... no wonder folks get, you know... a little stabby.
And it gets worse... the clear implication here is that this was simply another police frame job...
His girlfriend, Krystle Magallanes, told CBC News that Lumanglas had kicked a drug addiction and had been trying to turn his life around for herself and their four-month-old son.There you have it... right from the horse's ass.
Magallanes said her boyfriend “has a big heart” and said he “would never, ever stab a cop."
And you just have to love that headline... "Man shot after Toronto traffic stop was ex-con"... clearly implying that he was shot simply for being "in the system."
What was wrong with... "Man shot after Toronto police officer stabbed in neck?"
Funny how the CBC didn't manage to get word one from the family of Constable Jeff Blair.
Nope... no agenda here.
UPDATE: Live by the stupid...
...well, you know...
• TORONTO • "Peter Lumanglas, 38, the man who stabbed police Toronto Const. Jeff Blair in the neck before being shot during a routine traffic stop has died."
