PMO ordered Justice department to re-word Criminal Code to weaken Gladue principles for Aboriginal offenders

Investigative Reporter

Kenneth Jackson is based in Ottawa, Ont. and has worked more than two decades in the business. He got his start in community newspapers before joining the Ottawa Sun in 2007 where he worked the police beat.

In 2011, Jackson joined APTN to break the Bruce Carson scandal with Jorge Barrera that sparked three federal investigations into the former senior advisor to then Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Carson was later convicted of fraud sparking a court battle to the Supreme Court of Canada. The conviction was upheld and based entirely on APTN’s investigation.

Jackson has focused, almost exclusively, on the child welfare system in Ontario over the last five years. The work has earned multiple awards, including the 2020 Michener Award.

  1. This is a very serious concern because Harper’s former extreme Right validations are becoming more evident. He is ” Reformer”…lest we forget. He needs to fill all the 95 man Units he’s had built in most Canadian prison towns. Such disregard for Domestic Violence Victims as Jamie Gladue was.

  2. This is against Native Rights and all Aboringals people’s and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms for all Native propel in Canada

  3. I am pretty sure that there is something illegal about this, When I was taking criminal and civil law classes in college it was hammered into us that the Executive Branch is to be separate form the Judicial Branch and not interfere with the Juducial Branch or try to alter Criminal sentence or give direction on how to sentence an offender or rule on a case.
