It has been a hard couple of weeks. It is difficult to look in the mirror and confront racism and bias. But is is the only way to confront our countries deplorable, and on going, racism.
The final report of the Inquiry into Murdered and missing Indigenous Women and Girls was released last week. It was heartbreaking but also a breath of fresh air. The report opened with a bombshell - Canada is responsible for genocide against Indigenous people. Its true. Some may recoils in self defence but its true.
This episode, we look at the MMIWG final report, the use of the word genocide, and the Inquires calls to justice. We also talk about two separate Supreme Court decisions (Barton and Le), released in the days leading up the the MMIWG report, both decisions paint a picture of systemic racism in the justice system
