OTTAWA (CP) Faced with a surge in prison population, the penitentiaries service has reluctantly decided it must pro- ceed with a building program. John Braithwaite, deputy commissioner, said in an inter- tbe decision close study such things as forestry camps and minimum security in- stitutions would not be enough to cope with the load. He gave no time frame or cost estimates for the program, which he said the service de- cided on as a "reluctant last re- sort." But he did say it would involve smaller prisons that could be converted to other needs in. the future. Meanwhile, whi1e there were no plans to reinstate the elderly j prisons at Kingston, Ont., and St. Vincent de Paul near Mon- treal, it was always conceivable that circumstances over which the service had no control could force their temporary re-use. Mr. Braithwait said the fed- eral popu'ation jumped a startling 13 per cent in a j'ear, well above the annual rise of about four per cent that had held for almost 25 years. The latest figures available showed that the federal prison River from the corwded B.C. Penitentiary. Minimum security prisoners would shortly occupy trailers now on-site to begin prelimi- nary work. This type of pris- oner would do some of the work on the entire new structure, as part of a new program under which prisoners could earn regular wages and pay rent to the penitentiaries service. At some future date a new small maximum security prison would be built to take those prisoners from B.C. Pen who do not move to Mission. Mr. Braithwaite said over-al' building plans call for small In- stitutions containing about 150 prisoners instead of the present 400 to 600. The structures would not be "concrete boxes." They wouh be adaptable to other, non- prison, uses in the event that the convict population fell. There was no way of saving when the service would be able to vacate entirely its elderly buildings. If the population trend continued it would take more time than if the trend re- turned to normal.
