*This interview is complete with an intro and extro*

Recent controversy over where to build a new remand centre in Metro Vancouver is leaving hundreds in dirty and overcrowded conditions. The original plan to build the centre in Burnaby was quashed by disgruntled residents, and now plans for the new facility are delayed as the BC government decides where to build it. Stark Raven's Tiffany Chong interviews Jennifer McMillan, a woman who has served time at the Surrey Pre-trial centre. She is now a university student and housing first facilitator.
