How do same-sex marriage, medically-assisted dying, the rebirth of a political party and the Krever Commission link to democracy?

This award-winning documentary examines how four events (Tainted Blood, Legally Married, A House Divided and Right to Die) changed the Canadian social and political landscape over the last 25 years.

Tainted Blood: The story of the tragic failure of the Canadian blood system and how more than 30,000 Canadians received blood tainted with hepatitis C or HIV in the 1980s.

Legally Married: The story of how same-sex marriage became legal in Canada in 2005.

A House Divided: The story of the evolution of the Conservative Party of Canada: from the emergence of Reform to the uniting of the PC and Alliance parties.

Right to Die: The story of how medically-assisted dying became law in Canada in 2016.
