Justice System Must Change To Help Aboriginals

Saskatchewan’s Justice minister says he wants to see more Aboriginal employees in the justice system.


This week, Don Morgan will be discussing this issue and many others with Attorneys General from across western Canada.


The delegates are set to meet in Saskatoon over the next two days.


Morgan says he thinks increasing cultural support programs on-reserve will help the cause.


He explains it’s important that young people be given the tools to succeed in the work force, and also see success modelled for them.


He says that’s why mentorships and instruction from elders often pay off down the road for First Nations citizens.


Morgan says the members will also be discussing better ways to share intelligence.


He says information sharing is the key to eliminating the growing problems of gangs.
