Candice Shaw: Colonialism Creates Poverty By Design

Indigenous peoples face some of the highest levels of poverty in Canada. According to many people, including Candice Shaw, these inequalities are the intended result of colonial systems. Shaw believes that in order to address inequality at its core, we need to decolonize systems of power while continuing to engage Indigenous communities in discussions on reconciliation. Shaw is the Executive Director of the Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre. She spoke at The Walrus Talks at Home: Inequality in January 2022.
