Don Worme is one of the great defenders of the Aboriginal Peoples in this country.
He was a driving force behind the Neil Stonechild Inquiry that looked into the so-called freezing death of a young Aboriginal man in Saskatoon. [this item has been changed to reflect that the inquiry examined only the Stonechild death, and no other alleged 'freezing deaths']
A modern day warrior of the courtroom, his licence plate reads WARYER, Don's involvement in the legal system comes from a place of deep pain. As a child he watched the murder of his mother and sister. On this episode of Trailbreakers
, host Don Kelly takes us into the world of Aboriginal justice with one of Canada's top indigenous lawyers: Don Worme.
