Abstract
This interview describes the views of John Pastorek, warden at North Fraser Pretrial Centre (NFPC), a remand facility opened in British Columbia (BC) in 2001. The NFPC incarcerates offenders who have been remanded in custody pending trail or sentencing as well as individuals on immigration detention, and conducts the assessment and classification of offenders who receive a term of imprisonment of 30 days or more from a Lower Mainland court (BC Corrections 2010a). The NFPC is one of two pretrial centers operating in the Lower Mainland of BC and is situated in Port Coquitlam, one of the 22 municipalities in Metro Vancouver, a regional district composed of 2.1 million people (BC Corrections 2010a; Greater Vancouver Regional District 2010).*
