The next day he was
escorted by train to Lethbridge Province Jail. He had
been on a bread and water diet for 49 days and was very weak.
He was glad to be back at this jail. He worked outside
hoeing sugar beets. One guard was very mean to him and
always put him down because he was so weak and could not keep
up with the others. The work was hard, his hands bleed
often because they did not give him gloves to use.
