There’s a void in Yukon’s justice system when it comes to Indigenous offenders.

Currently, no one is writing Gladue reports that tells the life story of Indigenous offenders and are used by judges during sentencing.

As APTN’s Shirley McLean reports, justice workers say there is a high demand for dedicated Gladue report writers in the territory.
