Ostensibly the idea was to do media criticism. That is what the article in the National Post, The Year Of The Graves, set out to do; to hold the press to account and to correct errors that occurred in the reporting of the discoveries of unmarked graves at former Indigenous residential schools.

Featured in this episode: Terry Glavin, author of Year Of The Graves and National Post columnist; Karyn Pugliese, executive editor at National Observer; Robert Jago, freelance writer and entrepreneur.

When an Opioid Crisis hits a First Nation it’s different than in a city. In the city the addicted are mostly strangers. But in Pikwakanagan, if you see somebody behaving strangely on the reserve, you know them. You know your neighbor's business. You are your brother's keeper.
