Because aboriginals are just not up to the task of being treated equally as other Canadians.
Releasing rulings in a pair of much-anticipated cases that go to the heart of separate [but unequal]* treatment for aboriginal offenders, the court said that considering factors such as cultural oppression and a history of abuse in the residential school system must be central to the sentencing process.If we are mandated by the highest court in our land to "expect less" from aboriginals when it comes to law, are we not also justified in expecting less when it comes to, e.g., employment?
I'm glad I have a high view of equality and am not a liberal.
And that's the way the Ball bounces.
