On October 19th the Liberal Party of Canada won a majority government, beating out the much maligned Harper Conservatives. Liberal Party leader, Justin Trudeau, has made a number of commitments to minority groups, including women and Indigenous communities. Whether or not he follows through on these commitments remains to be seen, of course.

On Tuesday, I spoke with Dr. Pamela Palmater, a Mi’kmaw lawyer, associate professor and chair in Indigenous Governance at Ryerson University, and author of Beyond Blood: Rethinking Indigenous Identity, about what can and should change in Canada, with regard to Indigenous rights, now that the Conservative government has been ousted.
