Doctrine of Discovery: “Legal Fiction”

InFocus on APTN National News

Canada’s justice system InFocus – and whether or not it’s fair towards Aboriginal peoples.

In early February the University of Ottawa hosted a special lecture in Aboriginal law.

The lecture was given by Justice Harry LaForme (Ontario Court of Appeal).

He is the first and only First Nations, Appellate Court Justice in Canada.

Our guests in Ottawa were there for his lecture and join us to share their thoughts on what Justice LaForme had to say.

Larry Chartrand is a professor in law at the University of Ottawa.

With Larry are two of his law students who were also in attendance at the lecture: Kara Kennedy and Mahtab Hosseini
