DOJ to Link Manager's Pay to Producing More "Racialized" Lawyers

The Lawyer's Weekly (story is not online) reports that the Federal Department of Justice will link manager's pay to the number of lawyers they get from visible minorities and "other designated groups", although the ADM in charge, Donna Miller, admits that there is no actual lack of population representativeness in the DOJ. This would never happen if Stephen Harper were Prime Minister.

The problem is that these lawyers lack an adequate sense of grievance. As Ms. Miller puts it:

Miller said DOJ is actively working to promote racialized lawyers.

The article helpfully notes that the contracts for diversity training will be quite lucrative. Any Pith & Substance readers with the appropriate credentials are advised to take advantage of this great opportunity.
