APTN to Broadcast Elections May 2
The Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) will broadcast live coverage of the Canadian election all day on Monday May 2, the station reported.
The network’s Cheryl McKenzie and Todd Lamirande will host the special broadcast, with the co-anchors Michael Hutchinson and Dana Foster reporting from Winnipeg campaign headquarters, and reporters weighing in from ridings across the country will weigh in.
There’s also a Twitter feed, #aptnelxn41, the station said.
Voters and other interested parties will be able to track the 33 aboriginal candidates vying for seats in 24 ridings, as well as get a gander of how it might go for the billions of dollars in platform promises that have been made to the First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples.
“Indigenous voices are speaking louder in Ottawa, and APTN is listening,” APTN said.
