Three things InFocus: how Drag the Red helped find a missing man, Indigenous resistance and the AFN’s energy forum

APTN InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie

A young woman plans to run 450 kms this spring to fundraise for another boat for, Drag the Red: a group of volunteers who search the Red River in Winnipeg for missing women and men.

Watch the story of why this is such an important cause for the families involved and what happened in the search for one of their loved ones.

We also have an interview with a fierce writer and University of Saskatchewan philosophy student who tells us why sticking her tongue out in the presence of the provincial premier at COP21 was an act of resistance.

And we get a perspective on how the new federal government is changing the landscape on energy generated by resources from First Nations’ lands.
