Supreme Court of Canada Decision and how it affects Aboriginal Law

Edward Prutschi discusses an important Supreme Court of Canada decision that will greatly impact all legal cases involving Aboriginal offenders.

Edward Prutschi takes time out to talk to Jim Richards on CFRB NewsTalk 1010 about an important Supreme Court of Canada decision that will have serious ramifications for legal cases that involve Aboriginal offenders. The Supreme Court has reinforced an earlier decision that the courts must consider and actively factor-in the unique situation of Aboriginal peoples before rendering a decision. Previously, this decision was generally upheld by the courts for lesser crimes involving Aboriginal offenders but the Supreme Court wants it upheld across-the-board including charges that are classified as serious.
