June 02, 2012 07:00 PM PDTNOTE: this episode is geared towards sole parenting where only one parent is involved with raising a child. I apologize for any parent who feels attacked by this episode.

April 07, 2012 04:00 AM PDTNow I am all about aboriginal rights to the land, self government, revenue sharing etc. I am very troubled when aboriginal ancestry is applied to the criminal code.
