Deprivation Limits: Broadband Access and Lack Access
deprivation limits: The bulk of today's public discourse takes place online, so those who lack access to digital media are less likely to be civically engaged, according to Toronto Star. The stakes are highest for Indigenous people, whose deprivation limits their political participation. Yet in spite of continuing progress, four billion people around the world still remain offline, and some of them live in Canada. Their assimilation, should they continue to abandon reserves, also jeopardizes Canada's diverse character. For many Indigenous communities, gaining reliable and affordable broadband access is a matter of cultural survival. Canadians are obliged to recognize that fortifying our democratic society, and reconciling with Indigenous Peoples in a tangible manner, requires us to remedy the digital disparity that exists.
