BC Buddhist prisoner denied Buddhist chaplaincy help

British Columbia Buddhism in Canada Chaplaincy Prison

Here’s a very recent article from the Canadian Press wire service about a prisoner in BC whose request for Buddhist chaplaincy help was denied by Provincial and Federal Courts.

Regardless of this man’s past, cuts to Canada’s multifaith chaplaincy programs in prisons do not help make our society better in any way. Prison should be about rehabilitation, not punishment. Perhaps all that money spent commemorating the War of 1812 would have been much better spent keeping the old multifaith program in action!
