Beatrice Hunter, an Inuit woman from Labrador who was sent to jail week for her involvement in protests at Muskrat Falls, has been placed in a men’s prison, as there is no female correctional facility in Labrador. Jodi Greenleaves, one of those who gathered outside Her Majesty’s Penitentiary (HMP) to protest Hunter’s incarceration, said:
“We would like to see her freed, it’s ridiculous… There was no violent crimes committed … they have her inside here in a men’s prison that’s over-populated and is in disgusting condition…
…She’s in there with murderers and rapists and drug abusers — she’s an Inuit grandmother, a kind and gentle person. She’s not at risk to hurt anybody … she’s a political prisoner, is what she is.”
