Jamie Wilson’s tenure as Manitoba Treaty Commissioner has come to an end.
Appointed by the Harper government nearly six years ago, he was told by the Trudeau government that he would not be offered another term.
Jamie joined me in studio to talk about what he feels has been accomplished, what we still need to understand about the treaties, their impact on all of us and what lies ahead for him.
You can listen to that conversation below.
Once in a while a tragic case emerges when parents ignore their children’s healthcare needs in favour of so-called natural cures. That’s the case in Alberta right now where David and Collet Stephan are accused of failing to provide the necessities of life for their toddler, Ezekial, who died from meningitis after they took him to a naturopath instead of a hospital.
I spoke to the head of bioethics at New York University, Dr. Arthur Caplan about this case and how we should view the treatment of children with life threatening illnesses.
