In September 2008, Brian Sinclair, a middle-aged non-Status Anishinaabe resident of Manitoba's capital city wheeled himself into the Health Sciences Centre, Winnipeg's major downtown hospital.

McCallum and Perry show that Sinclair's tragically avoidable death reflects a particular structure of indifference born of and maintained by colonialism.
