Mr. Speaker, the Conservative government had a bad day yesterday. Not only did we learn that there was an increase in the number of inmates who escaped from penitentiaries last year, but Correctional Service Canada also reported that it has no more money.
The commissioner criticized the Conservative minister's transition fund by stating that they are having trouble making ends meet.
There are two federal prisons in my riding. Why is this government depriving them of the means required to supervise the most dangerous criminals?
