Do you believe a public inquiry is needed into the Ashley Smith case? Smith, who spent part of her childhood on Prince Edward Island, died at age 19 at a prison in Kitchener, Ont., after wrapping a strip of cloth around her neck and strangling herself. Guards who were standing watch outside her cell did not step in. They’ve said they were instructed not to intervene unless Smith stopped breathing.
