Judy Haiven: The verdict in the Boushie murder case: Are we going backwards?
Judy Haiven writes “The mainstream media in Canada tell us that each murder of an Indigenous person is unique, and each tragedy stands on its own. But we cannot look at these cases in isolation. There is a pattern here, which becomes more and more weighty and oppressive with each death. We, as white settlers, have to see the murders of Indigenous people in Canada the way Indigenous people see them —as genocidal.”
