Jordan River Anderson, The Messenger

A special documentary showing takes place at The Isabel on January 23rd.

Alanis Obomsawin’s 53rd film documents the story of a young boy who spent all five years of his life in hospital while the provincial and federal government argued over who was responsible for paying for the boy’s care. After facing criticism for the boy’s death, Parliament passed a motion in support of “Jordan’s Principle,” a policy meant to ensure equal access to government-funded health, social and educational services, although living up to the principle took a decade to be fully recognized.
