Public Safety Minister Announces Tougher Regulations for Healing Lodge Transfers

Federal Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale has announced tougher regulations on transfers to healing lodges.

WOODSTOCK - It looks like Terri-Lynne McClintic's days inside an aboriginal healing lodge could be numbered. 

On Wednesday Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale announced new rules for how Correctional Service Canada approves and assesses inmate transfers to healing lodges. The announcement means that McClintic's case could be up for an reassessment faster than expected according to a report from Global News. 

The report indicates that officials will have to consider a number of factors before moving an inmate to a healing lodge. 

The changes go into effect immediately, however Goodale would not comment on McClintic's case specifically.
