We were doing our holiday rounds at Christmas when we drove past Maplehurst, so I took this photograph, figuring I’d need it eventually.
Byron Sonne was incarcerated here as a “remand prisoner” (someone awaiting trial) for nearly a year because he was denied bail. Rapists and murderers are released on bail every day; not Byron.
I think Byron’s plight bothers me most as a mother; this is a young man who is willing to stand up for civil rights; and what can be more important for our children’s future than that?
Byron’s trial resumes tomorrow at 361 University Avenue, Toronto
