I am writing to express my deep concern for the health and well being of
Michael Scarpitti (who legally changed his name to Tre Arrow in 2001) CS
He is currently being held in solitary confinement in your institution and
through contact with his lawyer I am aware that he is facing the inhumane
treatment at your facility. I am shocked that the Canadian Corrections
systems feels that this is an acceptable way to treat a man who has not been
convicted of anything, and has caused no problems while in your custody. I am
writting to insist that a stop be put to these tactics, which amount to human
I understand that you have denied his repeated requests for a vegan (meat,
dairy and egg free) diet. Tre is Buddhist, and as such he is entitled by
Canadian law to a vegan diet. He is also lactose intolerant, despite being
informed of this health concer, your facility has refused to accomidate this
medical condition. I know Tre personally and have firsthand,
personal knowledge of both his spiritual convictions and his inability to
tolerate eggs or dairy products. Tre is not asking for special privileges,
only that his spiritual and health needs be met. It is your duty to meet
Tre has eaten a raw vegan diet for long enough now that putting cooked foods
into his system is dangerous, as his body quite simply cannot handle it.
Your facility has access to produce, and you have no excuse for starving or
I am contacting human rights organizations and attorneys on Tre's behalf, I
suggest you reverse your position before this becomes and international

OTHER WAYS TO HELP:
write and visit Tre as often as you can.
We are his only link to the outside world, and the life he
loves. Our visits and letters do more good than I can tell you, please go to see him as
often as you can.
Help Raise Funds: hold a bake sale, try your hand at busking,do a rummage sale, do what you can and
have fun doing it!
Radiate your love, light and positive energy to him. Pray, if that is your
tradition, or visualize him surrounded in beautiful white light. Light a candle.
He is the most spiritual, "tuned in" person I know. If you put your love out
there for him, in whatever form, he will know, and it will help him.
Love him ~ I promise it will help
