Celina Caesar-Chavannes: Going Her Own Way

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Once Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's parliamentary secretary and the only Black female MP on Parliament Hill, Celina Caesar-Chavannes grew disenchanted with politics and the Liberal Party and left them both behind. While she no longer has a seat in the House of Commons, the entrepreneur is still advocating for more people of colour in government. She joins Nam Kiwanuka to discuss her new book, "Can You Hear Me Now?"
