Xtra's Glaring Ommission

A gay activist was beaten to death in Halifax the other day. Understandably, gay rag Xtra is all over the story. It can't really frame it as a true hate crime, though, because the alleged killer, a deeply troubled aboriginal, belonged to one of Canada's other official victim groups. Not that Xtra mentions any of that, avoiding the killer's provenance like the plague.
