I guess black, indigenous and otherwise "marginalized" gang bangers are less lethal than the average gang banger.
So getting shot by a black, indigenous or otherwise disadvantaged gang banger is less odious than other gang bangers. Good to know.
90% of the current YVR shootings involve South Asians but I guess we need to cut them some slack because they are disadvantaged.

Mandatory minimum sentences should be recognized as failed sentencing practice

At their core, MMPs are unconstitutional. Point blank. Courts across the country and all the way up to the Supreme Court of Canada have found that MMPs violate the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Because the evidence is clear: MMPs are an ineffective and dangerous justice tool. They do not deter crime. They do not increase public safety. They disproportionately affect Indigenous and other racialized Canadians. And they are incredibly expensive.
