Canadian racism

The child that was horribly beaten then killed by his parents in Edmonton is horrifying. I am interested in how the mother was identified in the G and M as a First nations woman from the Louis Bull reserve. Does anyone see the problem with this? When white people do these horrifying things are they identified as an Irish-Catholic from 132 avenue in Edmonton? Not likely. Do you see how Canadian racism continues to play out and to be reinforced in Canadian media?
