I have spent the last 12 weeks (and longer) researching and writing mostly about issues that troubled me, enraged me or saddened me. Whilst I originally had a different link for my 12th week, I felt like this success deserved its own place amongst the words I have written in this class. Métis and non-status Indians now covered by federal government. A legal battle that was fought for 17 years, finally culminates in a rightful victory for the Metis and perhaps just a brighter day for humanity in general. This is what I would call a win in social justice.
