New campaign to stop conversion of farmland into prison

CAPP (Coalition Against the Proposed Prison) is a community campaign based in Kemptville organizing to prevent the construction of a new 235-bed provisional prison. The proposed site was previously home to the Kemptville Agricultural School, and the lands are considered excellent agricultural lands.

Concerned residents are hoping to prevent the transfer of the land from the Agricultural Research Institute of Ontario to preserve the farmlands. Want to add your voice in support? They have a email zap tool on their website:
