George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight In Haiti: Special Episode

Tonight we're airing a special repeat broadcast of our show featuring highlights from George's trip to Haiti two years after the 2010 earthquake that rocked the tiny nation.

In the documentary, George talks with Paul Haggis, whose NGO Artists for Peace and Justice is involved in building schools in the country, as well as Stephanie Tremblay and Janne Suvanto from the World Food Programme, Patrick Elie, a former politician and an activist in Haiti, Father Rick Frechette, director of NPH Haiti, and Lolo, of the Haitian band Boukman Eksperyans.

The broadcast also features George's conversations with a number of others involved in Haiti's recovery, including former Governor General Michaëlle Jean, former NHLer Georges Laraque, actress Olivia Wilde and Haitian activist Jean-Claude O. Fignolé of ActionAid.
