Absolutely not! This is how we create an unfair and unjust systemic incarceration epidemic like we see in the united states.

Yes, but eliminate quotas; strictly regulate them to prevent corruption and mismanagement; and prioritize rehabilitation.

 @MSelvig from Wyoming answered…8mos

I would need to look at real numbers and recidivism rates for private prisons to make an educated decision on this issue.

@926W98Jfrom Alberta  answered…8mos

Yes, but eliminate contractual occupancy quotas, as well as implement strict oversight

Yes, but prisons should be standardized and reformed according to available research on reforming prisoners.

No, incarceration is a social responsibility and the entire prison system needs thorough rehabilitation due to mismanagement, corruption and inhumane treatment of the non-violent segment of prisoners

No, and prisons should be entirely revamped into a better system, either handled by local government units or the national government. Instead, fine non-violent offenders or make them do community service, and provide education and rehabilitation programs for prisoners.

@7PTCG38 from Wisconsin answered…10mos

No, incarceration is a social responsibility that should not be entrusted to for-profit companies, who will disregard any rehabilitation services

@7PTCG38 from Wisconsin answered…11mos

No, incarceration is a social responsibility and entrusting quality of care and rehabilitation services to for-profit prisons is irresponsible and negligent

No, and prisons should be entirely revamped to a better system and handled by the state or federal government. Instead, fine non-violent criminals or make non-violent criminals do community service, and provide education and skill building services, and rehabilitation programs for prisoners.

No, as this could lead to the incentivizing of corrupt government officials to increase laws and mandatory minimum sentences to keep convicted felons behind bars for longer

only if they could provide a better quality of care and rehabilitation services, and were managed by the government and still had to report to them , as well as allow the public to have a greater knowladge of how its being ran

@8VTBF8J from Alabama answered…1yr

No. If the government sentences someone to prison, why should their punishment be dealt by someone other than the government.

@8VQBGSLCommunistfrom Nova Scotia  answered…1yr

@8VK8NLLfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Absolutely not. Rehabilitation should be the goal and that goal is simply unattainable if prisons are run by people who's primary interest is profit.

No the federal government should run all jails and keep all jails with the same throughout Canada

@8VGRB7Mfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Prisons should be used only for temporary holding of accused. Restitution to victims is required.

@8VGFPVGfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Only if there are measurable benefits in cost or performance. Prison labour could be used to compete with Chinese cheap labour.
