On October 17, 17 immigration detainees at Central East Correctional Centre in Lindsay, Ontario began refusing food, just two months after nearly 60 immigration detainees in two Ontario facilities ended a 19-day hunger strike protesting the indefinite detention of migrants.
The hunger strike is the third of its kind this year, and detainees' demands remain unchanged: an end to indefinite detention of migrants with a 90-day limit on detentions as an interim measure.
I've decided I'm basically anti-values. There's nowhere else to go. At first I thought I was just against the kind of race-based, Trump-echoing version of "Canadian values" that Kellie Leitch is building her run for the Conservative leadership on, and which she advocated while backing the "barbaric cultural practices tip line" last election. Our variation on right-wing U.S. "values voters."
