Justice and the law part one: Don Worme

Trailbreakers from CBC Radio show

Summary: Don Worme is one of the great defenders of the Aboriginal peoples of Saskatchewan. Don is the first lawyer most Native people in Saskatchewan will call if they come in conflict with the law. A modern day warrior of the courtroom; in fact his licence plate reads WARYER. He was the man behind the prosecution of the Starlight Tour cops that were leaving young native men outside the city in tshirts in the middle of winter. But Don’s involvement in the legal system comes from a place of deep pain: as a child he watched the murder of his mother and sisters. A pariah to some, a hero to many, Don takes us into the world of Aboriginal justice.
