Par Charlie Angus. 2015
Exposes a system of apartheid in Canada that led to the largest youth-driven human rights movement in the country's history.… The movement was inspired by Shannen Koostachin, a young Cree woman George Stroumboulopoulos named as one of "five teenage girls in history who kicked ass."
