Jody Porter worked for CBC in Thunder Bay for more than two decades. Her work on the injustices faced by Indigenous people in Northwestern Ontario from Grassy Narrows to Thunder Bay was cited in many hearings and reports including the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. And yet, she viewed her work with a very critical lens toward the end of her life after she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
In July, Jody succumbed to cancer and died at the age of 50. We are re-airing a conversation Jesse had with Jody in November 2020 during the Brayden Bushby trial.
