After headlines from Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, Democracy Watch discusses the recent B.C. Supreme Court Ruling that solitary confinement is unconstitutional. The News Collective reports from a Tuesday evening panel hosted by the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, where they spoke with several panelists including members of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association and Prisoners’ Legal Services. Democracy Watch then turns to a live in-studio interview with Senior Economist for the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Iglika Ivanova.
