Brad Wall to inmates refusing to eat prison food: if you don't like prison food, don't break the law

StaffRebel Columnist

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.

It goes back a bit, but I recall prisoners at Albert Head rioting for more TV and steak dinners…they got what they wanted. I was in the army at the time…imagine what would have happened to troops if they had done the same thing.

Just the name “Brad Wall” sounds PM-ie. Hey don’t let Trudass get wind of this. He’ll be serving the prisoners up the finest dining with our tax dollars. On that note, freedom tells me its time for some steak and eggs, home fries and tea this Saturday morning.

Schools have exchange student programs. Why not institute an exchange prisoner program in the U.S.? The only difference is we give ours and don’t take anyone back. Overcrowding solved! BTW, I only charge a fraction of what our Gov’t paid to watch a shrimp on a treadmill. www.thinkamerika.com

He is 100% right! Why will those criminals be a burden with the society and ask more!

I don’t like Wall’s statement. “but for the grace of God, go I” .. let Wall keep that in mind

Looks like the NDP in Sask. will secure the prison inmate vote.. Oh well, Mr. Wall cannot please everyone. Brad Wall for PM!

Makes sense to me. Its not a resort its ‘jail’. In many other countries if your relatives don’t bring you food in jail, you don’t eat. Don’t like it, make sure you don’t have to go there.

Egil Lomeland – the left will try to destroy Brad now. Just watch the pathetic lies and garbage coming his way.

Brad is just to sensible to be allowed to be a Canadian politician. Don’t expect to see him in Ottawa.

When they get hungry enough one of two things will happen.

They will eat.

Or they will die.

No pity from me.
