The 92nd Session of Youth Parliament of Manitoba will be concluding its debates on Monday. As of Sunday evening, The Public Schools Act, The Social Development Act and The Progressive Energy Development Act have all been passed by the house. Left to be debated are The Healthy Society Act and The Prison Abolishment Act. The Career Education Act, however, did not pass the House.
The Prison Abolishment Act attempts to revolutionize public perception of criminal offenders. It achieves this goal by eliminating all prisons in favor of rehabilitation centres, based on the Bastoy prison model. These centres would be placed in urban areas, so as to allow prisoners to have as much interaction with society as possible.
