CBC Ideas: Freedom from Oppression

On July 28th, 2018, I participated in a live taping of a panel discussion with host Paul Kennedy of CBC Ideas on the topic of Freedom from Oppression at Stratford Festival in Stratford, Ontario. The panel consisted of myself and two highly esteemed individuals, Bhutila Karpoche, Ontario NDP MPP, and Eloge Butera, a lawyer and former Rwandan refugee. It was a real pleasure to be able to participate in this highly evocative panel and learn more about Bhutila and Eloge’s experiences as well.

I’ve decided to share it on my blog.

Oppression takes many forms. It can be political as well as cultural, there's the weight of inherited oppression, and there's the question of how oppression shapes who we are, both individually and collectively.
