    I was taught in school that these savages were better than me because they used every part of the buffalo.

      According to archeological digs at places like head smashed in Buffaloe. jump that was not
      The case . It’s just more noble savage racism from the SJWs

        Yes, I know now that it wasn’t even true.

    And his parents never went to residential school either. I see another whiny indian university course in the making, a Trudeau selfie, and another 40 million dollar inquiry.

    Sentences like that are common out west.
    Hell, they even let people off lightly for being IN residential schools
    despite being too young to have been in one.

    In Vancouver they have native lawyers who’s sole job is to use
    the race card to get people even lighter slaps on the wrist then the
    ones BC courts already hand out.

    A Chinese woman got 5 years for killing her 2 babies using a “Cultural misunderstanding” defense and the judge bought it.

    • So – did the court confirm that Chinese women kill their children or merely suggest it?

    Indian activists plan to use residential schools as a guilt club for up to ten generations.if we let them

  • B@$#@rd.

    Again, why can’t we leave this guy off of the side of a highway in the middle of winter?

    Paternalist racism has once again hampered justice for aboriginals, especially the kids.

    Remember Phoenix Sinclair.

      Don’t forget the bottle of booze.

      An endless walk on the ice cold prairies in the dead of winter would have been a suitable fate for Phoenix Sinclair’s mother and stepfather…

    Decisions like this pretty much prove that judges and lawyers in this country have pretty much dispensed with the idea of justice. Victims are just another file on their desk.
    Their thoughts about the victim are: “Well, there’s nothing we can do. What’s done is done. So why should we take it out on this guy?(the offender).

    Lesson to be learned from this? Give up on the idea of the government actually DOING anything for you. They won’t. If you have been wronged by a criminal take action on your own if you can, quietly and discreetly enough you don’t get caught and leave it at that.

      I can recall a time when we had a justice system that actually worked; it was called the rule of law. In other words equal treatment for everyone for the same crime.

      • Jaedo Drax

        your mistake

        CONSTITUTION ACT, 1982

        15(2) Subsection (1) does not preclude any law, program or activity that
        has as its object the amelioration of conditions of disadvantaged
        individuals or groups including those that are disadvantaged because of
        race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or
        physical disability.

        • Alain

          No, not at all being old enough that my Canada predates 1982 by many years.

          • Jaedo Drax

            Unfortunately, since the Trudeau charter is largely impossible to amend we will never be rid of that particular abomination.

          • Alain

            I never disagreed on that point. In fact the point I was making was that prior to the destruction of the country, its justice system and laws by the Liberals (beginning with Pearson), it was a much better and certainly saner place. Now we no longer have the rule of law, but special laws for special groups as we see in this example.

    I once drove by a former residential school. Do I qualify for some money?

    The brightest progressive minds came up with the idea of Residential Schools. When it turned out to be a disaster, they blamed “Canadians” and “the churches.”
