Agassiz – Back on Friday (February 17, 2017 at about 6PM), a lockdown was put in place at Mountain Institution (Next to Kent Institution) to enable staff members to conduct an “exceptional search”.
Normal operations will resume as soon as it is considered safe to do so.
Regularly scheduled visits may be affected. Visitors who have already planned a visit are asked to contact the Institution directly.
The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC)has not stated what exactly they were looking for.
