This year, the Quebec-based Aboriginal filmmaking project Wapikoni Mobile is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Equipped with a mobile studio, filmmakers live in remote First Nations communities for a month at a time with a singular mission: to get young people inspired and motivated to tell their stories through film, music videos and animation.
Thanks to Wapikoni, over 600 films have now been made--telling stories that otherwise would never be told.
Jeanette spoke to Wapikoni's founder, Manon Barbeau, to get her insight on the trials and tribulations of giving First Nations kids a voice. Then, filmmaking mentor Alexandra Guité and 23-year-old Mi'kmaq filmmaker Raymond Caplin joined her in studio to discuss the life-changing effect the Wapikoni Mobile project has had on their lives.

As a part of Living English programming, CBC Montreal commissioned a poll which asked anglophones about wide rage of topics, including the consumption of culture.
More than half of Quebec anglophones rarely or NEVER listen to the radio, watch TV, read a newspaper or look at Web sites in French.
So why aren't anglophones interested in the culture around them?
Note: Survey results are based on a telephone survey using a random sample of 1001 Anglophone Quebecers (Anglophone as defined by Statistics Canada Census data), 18-years and older. The margin of error is +/- 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
