What are the social and legal conditions that have led to the murder of more than 1,000 Aboriginal women in the past 35 years?
A chorus of lawyers and bureaucrats have demanded a public inquiry into the question. An alternative would be to just listen to the case heard by the Supreme Court this week, R. v. Clifford Kokopenace.
Seven years ago, Kokopenace killed an Aboriginal man named Taylor Assin with a single stab wound from a knife. He was convicted of manslaughter.
He’s a killer. He killed an Aboriginal.
