The Kenora Jail has a long way to go.

That's the feeling of Kenora Rainy River MPP Greg Rickford who toured the facility yesterday.

He says he spent four hours meeting with personnel and came away with a good impression of what needs fixing.

"Some of the capacity, per cell, has to be looked. If you look at the hostage taking there are some upgrades that we can do immediately to how cells are locked and unlocked and different lighting requirements."

He says he'll be back before the Christmas break with a Kenora Jail Action Plan.
