So good to find an article about former prison gaurd Michael Mckinnon on page 3 of this weekends Focus Section from the Globe.

He was a first nations person who was forced to leave his job due to the horrible racial slurs he endured for years. The article has a happy ending where after more than a decade off the job he is finally being given some money by our Government (who of course runs the jail he worked in as prison gaurd) and being offered a new job.

I was extra glad to hear about the positive results as my friend Nadine Valcin made a documentary film for the NFB about this man's situation.

You can watch it here
