Criminal Law on the Aboriginal Plains : The First Nations and the First Criminal Court in the North-West Territories, 1870–1903
Available in the Osgoode Hall Law School Library
This study undertakes an in-depth analysis of the relationship between the First Nations and the criminal law in the 'Saskatchewan' region of the North-West Territories, taking as its temporal point of departure the creation of the Territories in 1870. Through data derived from criminal court records from Hugh Richardson's tenure on the territorial bench (1876-1903), this study analyses the role of Canadian criminal law in a watershed period of social and legal transformation in and for the lives of the First Nations.
