Stark Raven host Tiffany Chong interviews Christine about what new mothers going into jail will face now that BC Corrections has cancelled the mother and baby program. The program allowed mothers to keep their babies with them while serving time. BC Corrections quietly cancelled the program in April because they say they can’t ensure the safety of infants. Christine served time at Alouette Correctional Centre for Women and helped in the mother and baby unit. She is now working as a peer researcher with the Women Into Healing project. Alouette Correctional Centre for Women is a provincial jail located in Maple Ridge, British Columbia.
