Interview with Jody Wilson-Raybould
Jody Wilson-Raybould broke ground as Canada’s
first Indigenous Minister of Justice and Attorney
General. But it was when she challenged the
Prime Minister over the SNC Lavalin affair and
resigned that she stood her ground and went on
to tell her own story in her memoir, Indian in the
Cabinet: Speaking Truth to Power.
by Evelyn C. White

MULTIPLE CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY . . . . . . . . . . . 18
The Silent Epidemic
There are more than a million Canadians who
report extreme sensitivity to the everyday chemicals
in our lives, and the majority are women. Why are
Canadian health professionals not being trained to
provide adequate treatment to those who are like
canaries in a modern-day chemical coal mine?
by Varda Burstyn

The Journey of Jillian Christmas
Jillian Christmas is on a journey to find home
“in my own body, in my chosen family and in the
stories I carry.” Her book of poetry, The Gospel of
Breaking, extracts from family history, queer lineage
and the political landscape of a racialized life to
create a rich, softly defiant collection of poems.
by Boetumelo Julianne Nyasulu
