Whoaaaa....another brilliant suggestion by our federal government. I just don't know how these people can keep coming up with these ideas. They must have countless numbers of people in Ottawa just sitting around thinking up hair brained schemes. Maybe they have a bonus program for whoever can come up with the biggest bafoon idea of the month.
So let me get this right....because to be perfectly honest I wasn't truly aware of the inmate farm.
The immates have a produce farm that they operate throughout the summer where they grow crops some of which get donated to worthy causes and the remainder gets used for their own supplies. Hummmmmm.....sounds awfull sneaky and underhanded to me....insert your favorite government joke here if you have one.
Ok now lets close 6 of the farms cause the seeds may cost taxpayers a few hundred dollars a year. Now the prisoners can sit in their cells or hang around the exercise yards all day planning heaven knows what. Simply Genius......
Here's a suggestion for this government think tank. Maybe you can install big screen TV's in all cells..52 inch would be nice. Then we can pipe in 24 hrs of Barney or possibly Coronation Street so we can keep these guys out of trouble. I know that after 24 hrs of watching these wonderful CBC programs what immate would have the mindset to cause trouble. Also the cost of doing this would only be a few million $$. Then maybe with some poor management etc. you could mis-manage it into a billion or so.
Come on thinkers get rid of those unruly veggies gardens and get on with this new and improved prisoner re-abilitation program schedule.
What next Ottawa!!!
