REGINA - Inmates at a Regina prison appear to have ended their hunger strike.
A Saskatchewan government spokeswoman says no lunch trays were refused today at the Regina Correctional Centre.
The official says the menu was similar to what was served on Thursday, which included a cold-cut sandwich, coleslaw and soup.
About 115 inmates had been refusing to eat, saying the quality of the food was poor.
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall said he's seen the menu and he believes inmates are getting good choice and quality food.
He also said if people don't like prison food, then don't go to prison.
