Canadian Drug Policy and the Reproduction of Indigenous Inequities

pdf: Canadian Drug Policy and the Reproduction of Indigenous Inequities
Resource Description: 

Canada’s federal drug policy under the Harper government (2006 to present) is “tough on crime” and dismissive of public health and harm reduction approaches to problematic drug use. Drawing on insights from discourse and critical race theories, and Bacchi’s (2009) poststructural policy analysis framework, problematic representations in Canada’s federal drug policy discourse are examined through proposed and passed legislation, government documents, and parliamentary speaker notes.
