In this article, the writer looks at a prominent Canadian Supreme Court case and explores what social issues it raises. The writer discusses that the R. v. Gladue verdict of 1999 raises the specter that the Court is prepared to put group affiliation ahead of other mitigating or aggravating criteria when assessing the length of time (if at all) a wrong-doer should spend behind bars.
From the Paper:"Drawing upon three articles which take a similarly dim view of such jurisprudence, the ensuing several pages raise the specter that Canada is moving towards a legal approach that expressly discriminates against some groups while privileging others - and all in the name of equality."
