On this week's program... The all-too-brown face of child poverty in British Columbia: a new report details the frustratingly familiar reasons why and what to do, but will governments act?

Plus, the bigger picture underlying why educators on a northern First Nation have walked out over wages at a reserve high school.

Returning this week to our roundtable, Ken Williams, playwright-in-residence at the University of Saskatchewan and Patrice Mousseau, a journalist and entrepreneur.

// Our theme is 'nesting' by birocratic.

On this week's show... invalidation in Val d'Or: Why have three-dozen Aboriginal accusations of police abuse in this Quebec town come up empty? Plus, smudge grudge: a BC parent is suing her children's school because she claims it forced them to take part in a religious Indigenous ceremony.

Joining us at this week's roundtable are Ken Williams, playwright-in-residence at the University of Saskatchewan and APTN News & Current Affairs director Karyn Pugliese.

On this week's program: Trump triumph... what could the election of this outrageously racist man mean for Indigenous peoples in the US and beyond? And, another First Nation goes to pot. That is, if the Siksika in Alberta get their way, as Canada’s first Indigenous purveyors of medical marijuana.

Joining us once again at the roundtable are Ken Williams and Patrice Mousseau.

On this week's Indigenous roundtable…

Triggering Tension: non-Aboriginal hunters in Manitoba are upset after an Indigenous leader made no bones about bagging a bull in a no-kill zone; and, Sticker Shock: an Alberta trucker sets off a social media tsunami due to a giant decal on his rig that reads "one squaw too many."

Joining us this week are two new roundtablers: from Saskatoon, Ken Williams, playwright-in-residence at the University of Saskatchewan and a former reporter with APTN National News. And in Vancouver, Patrice Mousseau, a journalist and entrepreneur whose broadcast credits include CBC, Aboriginal Voices Radio and the anchor chair for APTN National News.
