The law firms of Koskie Minsky LLP and Sutts, Strosberg LLP and are prosecuting a proposed class action against the Province of Ontario concerning the inhumane treatment of young persons under the age of eighteen who were incarcerated in provincial youth custody facilities and subjected to prolonged periods of solitary confinement.
On August 19, 2015, a report by the Provincial Children and Youth Advocate revealed that many youth were being held in solitary confinement for well over 24 hours. This proposed class action alleges that the Province of Ontario breached its fiduciary duty, was negligent, and breached rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms in the treatment of these young persons.
All potential class members should register here.
