All Shannen wanted was a decent education. She found an ally in politician Charlie Angus, who had no idea she was going to change his life and inspire others to change the country. In Children of the Broken Treaty, Angus exposes a system of apartheid in Canada that led to the largest youth-driven human rights movement in the country's history. Based on extensive documents obtained via FOI requests, Angus provides chilling insight into how Canada deliberately denied children their basic rights.
