PC Leader Wants Pen Replaced

Ches Crosbie, PC Party Leader, wants to see Her Majesty’s Penitentiary replaced.

Crosbie says the structure needs to be replaced sooner rather than later.

Her Majesty's Penitentiary, at 85 Forest Road in St. John's, was built in 1859 and is still operational today.

There are reports that the prison is infested with rats.

Several inmates have complained about the living conditions inside the facility.
