In this episode we look at how Manitoba’s criminal justice system is inherently racist.

We speak with two guest, Corey Sherman, who is a human rights and aboriginal rights lawyer based in Toronto. Sherman has worked on several cases in Manitoba including the Craig McDougall inquest, in which he argued for the courts to consider the role systemic racism played in the case  

we also spoke with Bronwyn Dobchuk-Land, who holds a Master's degree in Sociology from the University of Toronto, and a PhD from the Department of Sociology at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center. Dobchuk-Land has recently been focusing on crime prevention policies from the perspective of community based organizations, and how progressive policy can serve to strengthen colonial systems of oppression. She’s also a member of the prison abolition group, Bar None.

Hey, well Canada still sucks but we have to do a little stop gap measure. We are working on several stories and issues but due to scheduling we still have to wait on a few things to come together. Rather than rushing content we decided to dig into our archives and replay (on CKUW) our interview with Tyler Shipley on Canada's role in the coup in Honduras and his view of Canadian Imperialism.
