676 THE ADVOCATE
VOL. 77 PART 5 SEPTEMBER 2019
I am honoured that my legal story has contributed to assisting the Law
Society to reaffirm that rehabilitation is a real and tangible thing. I wish this
new articling student and future lawyer the very best of success and congratulate
her on the heights of her accomplishments. I feel as though I am
a part of a growing trend that is good, perhaps even necessary, for our society:
a new breed of lawyers who were once outlaws but who are now breaking
in to the law.4
The law of rehabilitation is a beautiful thing.

3. The term “indian country” is a term used by my
friends and family in and around northern communities.
The term signals, and includes, territorial
spaces and communities that are not to be determined
by the colonial body. The non-capitalized
term “indian” is used in a sense that reasserts independence
and redefines the inherently racist terminology
relied upon within the Indian Act, RSC 1985,
