Law Foundation of Saskatchewan Lecture

Presented by Harold R. Johnson
Canadian lawyer and writer. Author of Firewater: How Alcohol is Killing My People and Yours - shortlisted for the Governor General's Literary Award for nonfiction.

Harold Johnson is a Montreal Lake Cree Nation Band member, an accomplished author, storyteller, and a former Crown Prosecutor with the Ministry of Justice. He is the author of five works of fiction: Billy Tinker, Back Track, Charlie Muskrat, The Cast Stone and Corvus (respectively, Thistledown Press, 2001, 2005, 2008, 2011 and 2015) and the author of two works of nonfiction: Two Families: Treaties and Government (Purich, 2007), and Firewater: How Alcohol is Killing My People (and Yours). In 2016, Firewater was a shortlisted nominee for the Governor General's Award for English-language non-fiction.

Harold has initiated a courageous conversation, challenging us all to "change the story we tell ourselves about alcohol," which inspired momentum across the country. He was formally seconded to the alcohol strategy project in 2016, and has since retired from Justice but remains on contract to support the Northern Alcohol Strategy.
