Order a sign
The Jail Opposition Group (JOG) and the Coalition Against the Proposed Prison (CAPP) invite you to communicate your opposition to the proposed prison by displaying a lawn sign at your home or business. Join us in saying "Stop the Kemptville Prison” and "Save the Farmland". We have double-sided Farmland signs available as well as signs with No Prison on one side and Save Farm Land on the other side.
A donation of $10, or whatever amount you can manage, to cover production costs would be greatly appreciated, but not necessary. Cash or e-transfer payment options are available.
Order your lawn sign today by emailing: email@example.com
Order a t-shirt
Show your opposition by wearing a t-shirt that clearly communicates your view of the province's plan to turn Kemptville into a jail town.
Order your t-shirt today (S, M, L, XL, XXL) by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The t-shirts are $15 each.
NOTE: An order was placed on October 5th, 2021, however, if you wish your name to be placed on the list for the next order, please be sure to let us know. The next order will be placed in the spring of 2022.
