Children of the Broken Treaty: Canada's Lost Promise and One Girl's Dream

All Shannen wanted was a decent education. She found an ally in Charlie Angus, who had no idea she was going to change his life and inspire others to change the country. Based on extensive documentation assembled from Freedom of Information requests, Angus establishes a dark, unbroken line that extends from the policies of John A. Macdonald to the government of today. He provides chilling insight into how Canada--through breaches of treaties, broken promises, and callous neglect--deliberately denied First Nations children their basic human rights. "I keep thinking how incredible it is that a Member of Parliament could care so much about his constituency." Alanis Obamsawin "Shannen did everything in her power to ensure First Nations children would get the proper education they deserve and after reading this book, you will too." Cindy Blackstock


Charlie Angus is the Member of Parliament for Timmins-James Bay. The author of six books, including Unlikely Radicals, he is also the front man of the band Grievous Angels.
