Ed Broadbent reflects on the "intellectual battle"


Ed Broadbent reflects on the "intellectual battle" he had with Pierre Trudeau over social and economic rights, the notion of liberal civil individual rights vs collective rights, and how that led to the inclusion of Section 35, the recognition and affirmation of the collective rights of Indigenous people, in the Constitution.
Ed Broadbent is the founder of the Broadbent Institute and former leader of the federal New Democratic Party.
