Justin Trudeau's apology to Inuit people affected by the tuberculosis epidemic

Daybreak Montreal

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is ready to give an apology to northern Inuit residents. PM Trudeau's apology was set to take place on Thursday -- but was postponed due to bad weather conditions in the area. The apology is on behalf of the federal government's widespread mistreatment of Inuit -- during the tuberculosis epidemics of the 1940s, 50s and 60s. We speak to Maggie Putulik, the Director of Ullivik -- an Inuit health centre in Dorval. She's lost a few members of her family to the epidemic.
