When: May 1, 2017 @4:30pm – Where: 141 Kennedy St (Remand Centre)

May 1, 2017 marks one year since the death of Errol Greene in the Winnipeg Remand Centre. As the inquest and civil suit go on, we are gathering to remember the life of Errol Greene: father, husband, son, brother and friend.

We have not forgotten him, and neither will the Remand.

We are meeting at 141 Kennedy St, across from the Remand Centre; gathering at 4:30, speakers at 5:00.

MGEU Must Act on Inmate Deaths

Seven people have died in Manitoba jails in 2016. Five died in the Winnipeg Remand Centre: Hollie Hall, Errol Greene, Robert McAdam, Russell Spence, and Lance Harper. We still don’t know the names of the two who died in the Dauphin and Headingley correctional centres. They all have families and friends who are left grieving their loss and desperately searching for answers. How could a system that prides itself on “protecting the public” allow so many to die?
