In this episode, we look at the 50th anniversary of the Decorations for Bravery. We speak with former Governor General, Madame Adrienne Clarkson, about what she’s learned from the everyday heroes she awarded during her tenure and from Russ Fee, a Medal of Bravery recipient who saved a family from a wolf attack.
What does a future look like where trans people live long enough to become elders, where Black liberation is assured, where there is landback and Indigenous resurgence, and where people with disabilities have everything they need in order to thrive in society? From The Walrus Talks Reconnecting Arts and Culture, where Dr. Syrus Marcus Ware shares what it means to work toward a future that is bigger than what we’ve dreamed of.
