In this module, you watched a talk from former Indigenous judge Murray Sinclair1 and lawyer Jonathan Rudin. Sinclair spoke of the ways in which the retributive criminal justice system poses cultural conflicts for Indigenous peoples. These ideas build on other content from earlier in the course. Rudin outlines the principles related to the Gladue decision, which are meant to address issues such as overrepresentation of Indigenous peoples in the Canadian legal system. Using specific examples from these films and the course overall, write an online post containing your response to the following question:
In what ways do the Gladue principles, and the introduction of restorative and Indigenous approaches as an option for police and the courts, either provide or fail to provide a better experience of justice for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples? Please discuss this question in relation to both victims and the people responsible for harm.
1Sinclair was appointed to the Senate in 2016 following his role as chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in Canada.
To continue with, by getting into a group of more “technologically developed” countries and companies, firms can benefit in improving their production. More specifically, by integrating with larger companies, firms incorporate better technological equipment. As a result, firms can produce more efficiently and hence, enhance their profits. At this point it would be useful to mention the phenomenon of “government subsidizing”. When a government notices a decrease in the country’s GDP (i.e. deficit) due to great import of products, which is expensive and in some cases time consuming, it aims to increase the domestic production. By subsidizing small firms, companies/firms will result in greater production and will therefore commence exporting. In that way, companies will become increase their popularity and eventually become multinational. However, it is of great importance for firms to obey to specific criteria in order for them to be in fact considered “multinational”. It is true, that the improvement of technological equipment, transportation of products and development of production processes and communications play a great role in the consideration of a company as “multinational”. Neil H. Jacoby proposes that a multinational corporation evolves from six stages. The first stage is exporting its products to foreign countries. In fact, when a country wants to get involved with another country’s market (market share), the government of the first country subsidizes a small company in the second country (country of interest) so as to increase its incomes. This phenomenon is called joint venture exporting and can be more specifically described as the procedure of producing goods in one country and selling them in another one. This procedure is linked to the first stage Jacoby described. Following the procedure of exporting, firms become multinational, increasing their profits and contributing to the outcome of the world’s economy and GDP.>GET ANSWER
