Jordan River Anderson, The Messenger

Abenaki director Alanis Obomsawin tells the story of Jordan River Anderson who spent all five years of his short life in hospital while the federal and Manitoba governments argued over who was responsible for his care. Jordan's Principle was passed into law in 2007 by the House of Commons to ensure that First Nations children would have equal access to government-funded services as the rest of the Canadian population. Lawyers and activists have continued their fight to ensure that Jordan's Principle is enforced by the federal government.
