Ghost Dancing with Colonialism: Decolonization and Indigenous Rights at the Supreme Court of Canada, Grace Li Xiu Woo (Vancouver: UBS Press 2011)

  • The Honourable John D. Reilly Provincial Court of Alberta (retired)


I write this review at the request of the Alberta Law Review. I assume they asked me for a couple of reasons. First, I sat as a judge for over thirty years, presiding over most of the cases arising on the Stoney Indian Reserve at Morley, Alberta. Second, I have written a book, based on that experience, entitled Bad Medicine: A Judge’s Struggle for Justice in a First Nations Community.
