Children of the Broken Treaty: Canada’s Unfinished Business From Duncan Campbell Scott to Shannen Koostachin
MP for Timmins-James Bay since 2004, Charlie Angus brings a unique and passionate Northern Ontario voice to federal politics. He has been named “Top Constituency MP in Canada” (Maclean’s) and the late Peter Gzowski called him “the poet laureate of Northern Ontario.” An author, journalist,broadcaster and musician,Angus celebrates working people and the resourcedependent communities of the North. He has been a tenacious and effective advocate for indigenous people, bringing national attention to the issues of the Attawapiskat First Nation in his riding. His latest non-fiction book, Children of the Broken Treaty, explores the systematic neglect of First Nations children by provincial and federal governments, and the disastrous effects of Canada’s residential schools.
