On June 29th ask the new Ontario Corrections Minister to build communities, not bigger jails

* Updated on 29 June 2018 *

Ontario's new Premier Doug Ford named the members of his cabinet today. To welcome Michael Tibollo, the Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, to his new portfolio, the Criminalization and Punishment Education Project (CPEP) is encouraging its members, members of other community groups and organizations, and other concerned residents of eastern Ontario and the province to do the following. 

Please take 10-15 minutes today or next week to contact Minister Tibollo to encourage him to immediately halt the province’s plans to replace the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre with a new and bigger jail, and to hold a public consultation on how to enhance the collective well-being and safety of the residents of Eastern Ontario.

This demand can be conveyed using one or more of the five methods outlined below.

  1. Tweet Premier Ford @fordnation and Minister Tibollo @michaeltibollo
  2. Write a Facebook message to Premier Ford @fordnation and Minister Tibollo @michaeltibollo
  3. Phone the Minister’s office at 1-866-517-0571
  4. Fill-out an online form on the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services website indicating "Corrections" under "My feedback concerns" and "Question for the minister" under "I am inquiring about"
  5. Mail a letter to: 

Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services
18th Floor
25 Grosvenor Street
Toronto, ON
M7A 1Y6

In your communications with the office of Minister Tibollo, you can also point to one of the many alternatives to jail expansion being shared via the #got99solutions – but a bigger jail ain’t one campaign on CPEP's Facebook page.


Today, next week and beyond, say #NOPE / No Ottawa Prison Expansion and #YESS / Yes to Education and Social Services!


Solution 18 of 99
