Based on actual reports, writings and speeches, Metis actor John D. Huston (SHYLOCK, Underneath the Lintel, two Sherlock Holmes adventures, A Christmas Carol) and writer Keir Cutler (Teaching Shakespeare) resurrect a government bureaucrat who attempts to justify the unjustifiable: Sir Wilfrid Laurier’s vision for Canada’s Natives and the ongoing repercussions.

A compelling look at what is “civilized”.

Directed by Paul Hopkins (A.D. Shakespeare in the Park, Montreal; Actor: Stratford Festival, More Tales of the City).
