Quote:
"The notion of even imagining ourselves in the future can be a very powerful act, especially when in the creation of Canada we [First Nations] were not supposed to exist in the future. These are serious things that any colonized country should really be grappling with: how they were founded upon the attempted genocide of Indigenous people. But when you work in the genre space, in a funny way, you can hit your message harder, because in fiction you're allowed to embellish."
