39. Broken Prisons: Thirty Years in Canada’s Prison Service
Robert Clark, a three-decade veteran of Corrections Canada, believed he had something to offer prisoners. This belief was crushed as he climbed to the position of deputy warden and suffered a crisis of conscience that took its toll on his health and happiness, and in the end, wouldn’t be silenced. Robert’s stories of institutional neglect, secret-keeping, and downright cruelty call into question Canada’s current punishment paradigm. Addressing the question or whether the country’s prison system needs reform, Robert tells it like he experienced it, and like most of us will never know.
