Emmanuel Lewis and the PSA That Changed Lives

'Webster' star Emmanuel Lewis talks about a public service announcement he made in the 1980s, and gets to see the impact it had on other people's lives - including Justin Bieber's mom, Pattie Mallette.

Mallette will be in the red chair this season, to talk about her book 'Nowhere But Up: The Story Of Justin Bieber's Mom', which explores her personal struggle with abuse.

As for Lewis, he's in the red chair tonight and will be appearing tomorrow night (Thursday, October 11) at the 8th annual Dreamcatcher Gala in Hamilton, ON, alongside such boldface names as Kardinal Offishall and the star of CBC's 'Arctic Air,' Adam Beach.

Awards will be given out in a variety of categories to people "whose work has significantly impacted" Aboriginal communities across Canada. The Dreamcatcher Charitable Foundation provides assistance to First Nations all across the country.
