The internationally praised Canadian dancer Margie Gillis has had quite a year. First, she was honoured with the Governor General's Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Achievement -- one of many honours bestowed upon Gillis for her impressive body of work as a performer and choreographer.
But Margie Gillis also gained worldwide attention this summer after being the subject of an interview on the SUN TV network in June, later called "an attack" by Gillis herself. The controversial segment quickly generated over 4000 complaints to the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council, more complaints than the council usually receives in a year.
Margie Gillis sat down with Jian to talk about that and more. Have a listen below and let us know your thoughts right here.
