News in Review Missing, Murdered, Mishandled: Systemic Racism in Canada's Justice System?

Can Indigenous individuals receive fair treatment in Canada’s policing and courts system? Three high profile cases — the acquittal of the accused killers in the deaths of Colten Boushie and Tina Fontaine, as well as the mishandled investigation into the death of Stacy DeBungee — have highlighted the harsh reality of our justice system when it comes to Indigenous people. The outcome of each case has led to angry protests and cries of racism in our policing and courts. Two of the cases led to a review of how the case was handled by police. Is the system blatantly racist against Indigenous people? Or is justice blind? We examine the three cases and their outcomes.
