Speaking truth to power

November 19th, 2021

Jody Wilson-Raybould has followed up her collection of speeches and lectures, From Where I Stand: Rebuilding Indigenous Nations for a Stronger Canada (UBC Press, 2019), with a memoir, Indian in the Cabinet: Speaking Truth to Power (HarperCollins $34.99) that charts her journey from her home community, Cape Mudge, B.C. to Ottawa as Canada’s first Indigenous minister of justice and attorney general. She writes about why she got into federal politics, her experience as an Indigenous leader at the Cabinet table, her proudest achievements, the SNC-Lavalin scandal and how she moved forward. She also explains why she believes there is a better way to govern and do politics that will make a better country for everyone. 9781443465366
