A search for safety in James Smith Cree Nation, six months after stabbing attacks; author Jenny Odell on how the clock rules our lives; and U.S. push for Canada to lead intervention in Haiti
Six months after 11 people were killed in a stabbing attack in James Smith Cree Nation, the community in Saskatchewan is still figuring out how to keep itself safe. A new security patrol has been set up to deal with violence, but it’s unarmed, with no formal training or official authority. CBC reporter Olivia Stefanovich spent time there; she tells Matt Galloway what she’s heard about the First Nation’s search for safety.
Then, in her new book Saving Time: Discovering a Life Beyond the Clock, author and artist Jenny Odell explores society’s relationship with time, how we measure it, and whether nature can give us a different way to appreciate the passing moments.
And when U.S. President Joe Biden visits Canada this week, he’s expected to urge Ottawa to lead an international intervention effort in Haiti, where criminal gangs control more than half of the country and a cholera outbreak is worsening. We talk to Louis-Henri Mars, director of the Haitian peacebuilding organization, Lakou Lapè; Renata Segura, deputy director for Latin America and the Caribbean with the International Crisis Group; and Tom Lawson, a former chief of the defence staff with the Canadian Armed Forces.
