Radio Pick: Natives in the Military

TORONTO, ONTARIO - Traditionally, the CBC has offered a large selection of special programming in the summer that has filled my weekly radio picks for most of the season. Not this year. In a limited selection of new programming, the only program that has impressed me has been a second season of "Revision Quest," a show that "kicks some ass-umptions about aboriginal life in Canada." Comedian Darell Dennis hosts a comical but often profound look at issues affecting natives--such as what they should be called. This week's 27-minute broadcast focused on the military, asking the question of why so many natives have fought for a country that treated them so poorly.
