Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall had a simple response to a group of hungry inmates who are refusing to eat.
“If you really don’t like the prison food, there’s one way to avoid it, and that’s don’t go to prison,” he said.
According to National Post, 115 inmates at the Regina Correctional Centre are refusing to eat because of the food quality.
In November, food services at the jail were switched to a company called Compass Group. The government said the change would save nearly $12 million over the five years. Corrections Minister Christine Tell said the move allows the ministry to focus on programming to help offenders.
The company has done business with the City of Saskatoon and the University of Regina.
Brad Wall said a lot of credible public and private institutions were satisfied with their food quality and he himself called it 'pretty good'.
“I’ve tried their food. If you’ve been at TCU Place in Saskatoon, you’ve tried the food. It’s pretty good. Tried the food in Moose Jaw at Mosaic Place when we had a caucus meeting there. It was pretty good as well,” he added.
