What are We Missing in the Reconciliation Conversation?

By Ry Moran and Nicole D. Bresser
Inside this issue:

Barristers and solicitors of British Columbia are sworn to “uphold the rule of law and the rights and freedoms of all persons according to the laws of Canada.” But those laws aren’t always just. This issue of BarTalk grapples with the legacy of colonialism, unjust laws and attitudes, and the lawyer’s duty in the face of oppression. Authors call for community and understanding, discussing issues, including treatment of Indigenous youth and adults by the court, Indigenous cultural rights and implications of a UN treaty on the same, the work of the CBABC’s working group, and commentary on justice reform initiatives.
