Abstract

“Not broken, but simply unfinished.” As reflected in this line from Amanda Gorman’s poem at U.S. President Joe Biden’s inauguration, there is still work to be done to achieve our justice system’s highest ideals.

As a country, Canada is beginning to acknowledge and understand the contributions that Indigenous peoples make towards Canadian democratic institutions and legal systems. However, an Indigenous jurist has never been appointed to the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC).
