#CAJ16 Following the money in Indian Country

Regrettably, with few exceptions, Canadian media don’t dig into questions of public spending by First Nations with the same enthusiasm as they would with the closest municipality, school board, health authority, province, etc.Why not? Money can be followed on and off reserve if you’re willing to put in the time and effort.In this watchdog workshop, investigative reporters Melissa Ridgen and Jorge Barrera show you how they uncovered and exposed corruption surrounding First Nations communities, from the first hunch to the last legal vet.They’ll examine three stories as case studies walking reporters through the steps.
