"An aboriginal person who has had a personal or family involvement with a residential school in Canada is statistically more likely to end up in the care of the Children's Aid Society (CAS), a new study now shows. And being involved with the CAS increases his or her likelihood of getting into trouble with the law. The study, 'Residential School Experience and Involvement with the Criminal Justice System', was commissioned by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC)". "The findings provide 'a very clear indication of the inter-generational trauma' of residential schools, said Jonathan Rudin in an interview. Rudin is program director at Aboriginal Legal Services of Toronto (ALST) and co-author of the report, along with Ashley Quinn". "Even though aboriginal people make up less than four per cent of the total population, one in four male inmates in Canadian prisons is aboriginal, Rudin pointed out. One in three women in jail is aboriginal and almost a third of incarcerated youth is aboriginal".
