Google Gladue Rights

Indigenous people in Canada have special Gladue Rights. A
detailed Gladue Report is written about the accused’s life
circumstances and recommendations are made to the judge who
then must consider alternatives to incarnation.

 Indigenous people make up 5% of Canada’s population but
27% of Canada’s prison population
 Over a third of the women in Canada’s prisons are
indigenous
 Almost half of youth in prisons are indigenous

Hardly anyone knows about their Gladue Rights. There is too little
training for Gladue writers. Gladue Rights are meant to encourage
healing; just Google Gladue Rights.
