cent: But the challenge of unrepresentative juries is not limited to Indigenous communities and certainly not to Saskatchewan, according to Toronto Star. An investigation by the Star and the Ryerson School of Journalism exposed the daunting dimensions of the challenge here in Ontario. That case has prompted a much-needed and overdue conversation about the urgent problem of Indigenous justice in Saskatchewan and beyond. Over the course of two years, reporters analyzed 52 juries in Toronto and Brampton, finding that while so-called visible minorities constitute a majority in both municipalities, 71 per cent of all jurors were white. Forty-six per cent of all defendants were Black, yet Black people comprised only 7 per cent of jurors. This is particularly troubling when you consider who stood accused in the trials.
