The Age of Aquarius... again

When will University of British Columbia establish a sino-sensitive law school to redress all their cultural sins?

“What I want to do is ensure that indigenous studies, aboriginal issues, are front and foremost in terms of our program, and I think that's achieved by making it a law course,” said Lakehead University Law School Dean Lee Stuesser.

The law school is set to open this fall. In 2011, Lakehead University received approval from the province to start up the school after making the case that the law school would emphasize addressing the legal needs of northern First Nations communities.
I thought the law was the law. Silly me.

"An injunction employed to restrain the exercise and assertion of aboriginal rights not only threatens the public peace and safety but fundamentally undermines the rule of law."
"Chiefs also oppose Bill S-2, which would protect the matrimonial property rights of women living on reserves if their marriages end."
Hey... gotta be sensitive, huh?
