A halal diet required
|Authority||Ministry of Children and Family Development|
Mansur was being held at Burnaby Youth Custody Services Centre (the Centre) and was concerned that the food he was being served was not certified halal, a requirement of his religion. Mansur spoke to staff at the Centre about his dietary requirements. While he was being served food marked as being halal, he had some questions about how the food was prepared and his questions were met with unclear answers.
Concerned and unsure if he should be eating the food, Mansur connected with us during a site visit to the Centre.
While Mansur had raised concerns with staff members on his living unit, he had not spoken to the Centre’s Director of Operations, nor had he made a formal complaint.
