Trudeau Will Recognize Separate ‘Indigenous Rights’

OTTAWA — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Wednesday that he intends to recognize “indigenous rights” above and beyond those already guaranteed to every citizen by the Canadian Charter of Rights.

The decision has set social media ablaze with criticism and fury as many accuse Trudeau of dividing the country on racial grounds.

Speaking to the House of Commons, Trudeau vaguely outlined a two-tier justice system that he says will enable Aboriginal people to be “in control of their own destiny.”
