April Wine continues to tour across Canada annually and also plays festivals in Europe and in the United States, with the group now consisting of Goodwyn, Greenway, Lanthier, and drummer Roy "Nip" Nichol.

The men under lockdown think the officers are too harsh. One inmate in Tower B alleges that in February , an officer laughed at his request for toilet paper after he ran out of it during a three-week lockdown, then made him get on his knees and beg for it.
Andrie Samuels, an inmate facing charges related to the importation of meth, says that an officer told him, in the summer of , after Samuels complained about being treated like a criminal: In the summer of , inmates refused meals for three days in protest of incessant lockdowns. A few months later, inmates rejected their meals. Tensions boiled over one afternoon on unit A-2A, when an officer intervened in a fight between two inmates. They turned, possibly by design, on the officer.
Backup arrived, at which point more inmates jumped into the fray. Eventually, some 40 inmates were fighting roughly staff, including 20 managers. The riot lasted for 27 minutes. And because injuries to officers caused a staff shortage, the facility was quickly placed on lockdown. W hen I began my research on the South last fall, one of my first steps was to request a meeting directly with the superintendent.
A few days later I heard back from a ministry spokesperson who asked me to send all requests through him. I asked him for a tour and again for a meeting with the superintendent.
After two weeks, a second ministry spokesperson emailed me back: Fine by me, I said. But that would likely take months to arrange, they replied. Early January would be fine, I said. As one veteran officer told me: The facility calls in expert technical support only for major problems. The flaws go beyond the computer system. One of the elevators was faulty, and when the power cut, it would sometimes drop multiple floors—once when an officer was inside.
Another time, a female officer was in the elevator with multiple inmates when the power went out. In the observation modules outside the units, the control panels constantly malfunction. Sometimes, the system will flash code blue, indicating an assault when in fact nothing of the sort has happened. Officers were surprised to learn that when the power goes out, the doors to segregation cells can unlock and staff have to hold the doors shut.
Enterprising inmates discovered that they could trigger the fire alarms by blowing powdered milk into the smoke detectors, or that they could flood their cells by ripping sprinkler heads from the ceilings.
In July , an inmate on the B-4B unit debunked the theory that the windows were unbreakable. The ministry has replaced some 1, panes, the cost of which they refused to disclose.
Officers worried that inmates would grind the shards into a powder and blow it in their faces; management told them to wear goggles.
Inmates discovered that faucets could be easily removed, placed in a sock and used as an effective flail. Instead of using epoxy paint in the showers, builders used an eco-friendly variety, which caused mould problems within a year. According to Samuels, the inmate facing charges related to the importation of meth, the security process sometimes goes analog: Other cost-cutting innovations by the ministry have proven especially dehumanizing for inmates.
Face-to-face family visits have been all but eliminated. The facility is currently testing a traditional Plexiglas booth arrangement. All exterior windows are frosted, which means no one can see outside or feel sunshine on their faces. Much of the medical complex, which promised a bed mental health assessment unit and 60 beds across two medical health units, lay unopened for about a year, due to difficulties finding anyone to staff it, and was used instead for storage. Sick inmates were placed in segregation in the interim.
In February , an inmate committed suicide by hanging himself in his cell; the mental health assessment unit opened the following month. A dental X-ray machine was improperly installed and threatened to irradiate the staff it has since been repaired. The negative pressure rooms, meant for inmates with contagious airborne diseases, regularly malfunctioned.
Even when the medical wing is operational, constant lockdowns prevent the administration of care. A former inmate named Ronald Doyle, who was in the South facing weapons charges, spent 71 of his first days in lockdown. A Type-1 diabetic, his life depends on a balance of regular insulin injections, diet and exercise. Sometimes, the only needles available bore too large a gauge and made him bleed profusely, causing so much pain that he refused them.
As a result, records show his blood sugar often measured above 12, which would cause nausea, migraines and painful swelling in his legs, and it frequently climbed over At sentencing, an Ontario Court judge subtracted two months from his sentence, deeming his treatment part of the punishment. Similarly, an inmate named Jeffrey Bedward, facing six firearm-related charges, spent days on lock-down during a day stay at the South from July to November The outcome is a bizarre twist on justice: The facility has only two meeting rooms for lawyer visits, and those two rooms are almost always booked.
Some lawyers have resorted to speaking to their clients in booths separated by Plexiglas or via video conference, holding up page after page to the small camera. Andrie Samuels got so tired of the process—eight of his 15 meetings were cancelled due to lockdown—that he fired his counsel and represented himself.
Tello says he lost custody of his daughter in part because he was unable to meet regularly with his lawyer during divorce proceedings. Inmates get shuttled through long corridors to reach the transportation area, but the multiple doors along the way can malfunction. The doors can take up to 12 seconds to open, and going from one building to another takes roughly 10 minutes.
When officers fear for their safety, which is often, they take just one inmate at a time instead of multiple, which further backlogs the process. One judge told me that inmates at the South who are supposed to arrive at court for 9 a. Everything is slowed down. And all the ills of the system are just extended that much longer. Both actions may well succeed. In , two inmates at Maplehurst in Milton—Jamil Ogiamien, an immigration detainee, and Huy Nguyen, an inmate facing weapons charges—brought a suit against the province, the ministry, Maplehurst and the attorney general, claiming that lockdowns were akin to solitary confinement and in violation of the Charter.
Conditions at the South are at least as bad as those at Maplehurst, if not worse. And because the South houses some 1, inmates at a time, there could be a lot of claimants. These legal actions threaten an outcome that would be devastating for a government with an approval rating already in the low teens: Sensing a budding fiasco, the ministry committed to hiring 2, more correctional staff across the province over three years.
Since , the South has hired correctional officers, and 51 recruits have been assigned to the facility once they complete training. The ministry would not tell me whether they are full- or part-time hires. According to the union, the province is already short some full-time officers, and approximately are expected to retire this year alone. Still others will likely seek transfer from the South or leave corrections entirely.
Adding 2, officers province-wide over three years seems to be not enough to keep up. The problems at the South have received some media coverage, but not much. Secrecy about a jail is of course necessary for the safety of inmates and officers and for limiting escapes.
But the culture of fear causes unhappy officers to apply their only remaining tactic to seek relief: One officer told Tello that staff at the South wanted the prisoners to suffer through lockdowns so that they would riot and bring attention to their shared plight. Inmates, now and for the foreseeable future, are collateral damage. At a time when taxpayers are focused on toll roads, creaky infrastructure and skyrocketing hydro bills, jail reform falls low on the list of priorities.
I hoped that Minister Lalonde, who took over the corrections post in January, might have a fresh perspective on the crisis in her ministry. I emailed her a list of questions about the South and its compatibility with direct supervision. On the same day I sent the email—January 27—news broke that two inmates at the South, one 22 years old, the other 41, got into an argument in their cell. The altercation came following a series of lockdowns, according to my sources in the jail.
