In this Hot Docs exclusive, Peter Mansbridge, the cherished former anchor of CBC’s The National, joins Bob Rae, Canada’s Ambassador to the United Nations, to discuss his new collection of first-person stories about remarkable Canadians who embody the values of our great nation. Featuring voices from all walks of life—advocates, doctors, veterans, immigrants, and more—Extraordinary Canadians celebrates the people who have overcome adversity and broken down barriers to champion the rights and freedoms of everyone who calls Canada home. As they share these timely and heartwarming stories, Mansbridge and Rae will also discuss their own years of national leadership—and the lessons we can all draw from the inspirational people across our country, who are each, in their own way, making Canada a better place for all.
