MP Robert Falcon-Ouellette gives an impassioned speech on Parliament Hill about our investigation into Canada’s justice system

by

Robert-Falcon Ouellette, the Liberal MP for Winnipeg Centre, gave an impassioned response to a months-long investigation from Maclean’s reporter Nancy Macdonald that revealed that at every step, Canada’s justice system is designed to put Indigenous people in jail—and keep them there. “It’s a two-tier justice system,” said Ouellette, speaking to reporters from inside Parliament Hill, and promising to go to his riding and to prisons to speak to constituents and give voice to them.
