Program Title: ‘They had the nerve to smell her breath’
Description: This week the world heard from Debbie Baptiste. She spoke out on Monday at a press conference about an independent report that found Canada's national police force racially discriminated against her in the investigation into her son’s death. Her son was Colten Boushie, a young Indigenous man who was shot and killed in 2016. Today, CBC Saskatoon reporter, Guy Quenneville, joins us to explain the report. We are also joined by Gina Starblanket. She is a Canada Research Chair in the politics of decolonization, a political science professor at the University of Calgary and co-author of “Storying Violence: Unravelling Colonial Narratives in the Stanley Trial”. Gina is a member of the Star Blanket Cree Nation in Treaty 4 territory in Saskatchewan.
