    Terry Glavin on fake mass graves and Trudeau's woke lies

    Terry Glavin on fake mass graves and Trudeau's woke lies

    In this episode, Meghan Murphy speaks with Terry Glavin, a Canadian journalist, author, and columnist at the Ottawa Citizen and the National Post. After publishing a piece outlining the journalistic failures leading to national headlines falsely claiming the discovery of "mass unmarked graves of Indigenous children" at the sites of former Residential Schools in Canada, Terry was slandered across social media and the Canadian literary landscape as "a residential school denialist” and "racist," despite his long history of work with Indigenous peoples and that he was correct: no "mass graves" were ever discovered, as reported. Meghan speaks with him about his reporting, the real story, and about the problems with journalism in Canada.   

    Terry is the author of numerous books, including "The Last Great Sea: A Voyage Through the Human and Natural History of the North Pacific Ocean." His work has covered regional and global politics, natural history, and anthropology. He has published numerous books and articles about Indigenous peoples, cultures, histories, politics, and issues, including, "Nemiah: The Unconquered Country" and "A Death Feast in Dimlahamid." Glavin was awarded the Lieutenant Governor's Award for Literary Excellence in 2009. Find Terry on Substack at The Real Story.

Worth a listen

Meghan is quite fascinating and I urge people to listen. I don’t always agree with her stances but her opinions offer a very interesting point of view.
