Political Blind Date – Reconciliation

Two politicians with opposing points of view try to get to know each other in each episode of this six-part series. Whether cycling around the city, or trying to rent a flat in Toronto’s red-hot housing market, the two subjects are brought together to tackle Canada’s most important issues face-to-face through in-depth conversations.

Romeo Saganash, a Cree NDP MP from Abitibi-James Bay-Nunavik-Eeyou, Quebec, and Don Rusnak, an Ojibway Liberal MP from Thunder Bay-Rainy River, Ontario, uncover differing approaches on how best to improve Indigenous communities in Canada. Is the Liberal government living up to its promises about a new partnership with Indigenous peoples?
