Ontario jail inmates are still being transported to and from the courts during the COVID-19 pandemic, although justice officials say they’re reducing these in-person appearances. “It’s completely ludicrous,” one correctional officer said in an email to the Toronto Sun. “The correctional facilities are set up for video court. Use it. No more transfers of inmates and no escorting to courts, putting so many people in jeopardy.”
