In most shelters across Canada, like the one I work for, there is a glaring disproportionate representation of aboriginals. It’s a deep problem that needs constant attention. It needs nothing short of a systemic overhaul.
I’m happy that at least one of the Liberal leadership candidates is talking about something fresh regarding the antiquated "Indian Act." See yesterday’s paper.
Of course we know that something deeper than administrative politics is needed for long-term healing, but it’s at least a beginning. Hopefully it will get ongoing appraisal and more details will come out soon.
