Reclaiming Aboriginal Justice, Identity, and Community is one of the titles in Purich's Aboriginal Issues Series. The book examines the various ways Aboriginal Peoples in urban areas cope with justice, healing, and self-government issues. This volume describes the Community Council Project, an Aboriginal diversion program in Toronto. Proulx shows how justice, healing, and community intersect, drawing on the example of the CCP. He discusses what constitutes the Aboriginal community in Toronto, and how the CCP is playing an important role in shaping and defining the community.
