Does Gladue apply to bail or sentencing for any crime committed by an Aboriginal person?

Question: 
Does Gladue apply to bail or sentencing for any crime, even serious ones, committed by an Aboriginal person?
Answer: 

Yes, there are no crimes so serious that Gladue does not apply. Gladue applies to all crimes in the Criminal Code of Canada. If you are an Aboriginal person, a judge must take your background into account when setting bail or deciding what sentence to give you. This is called "applying Gladue."
