Ontario trucker Bradley Barton sentenced to only 12.5 years for killing Indigenous woman
(July 27, 2021- Ottawa, ON) The killing of Indigenous woman Cindy Gladue was a sickening and barbaric act. The extent of her trauma and injuries that lead to her bleeding to death in an Edmonton hotel room is the stuff of nightmares. The fact that a white male perpetrator was only sentenced today to 12.5 years for taking a valuable Indigenous life is incomprehensible.
The justice system, while arriving at the right verdict and retrial process, failed Cindy Gladue. She was revictimized by the court process as was her family and community. All Canadians need to reflect on this case in the context of missing and murdered Indigenous women. This is not justice.
