“NO”: One Word Changes a Nation in the Timely CTV Original Movie Elijah, May 25

— Billy Merasty, Gabrielle Miller, Maury Chaykin and Lorne Cardinal star in homegrown David and Goliath story —

— Nominated for eight 2008 Leo Awards —

TORONTO, April 29 – The Meech Lake Accord: a political crisis that left the country teetering on the edge.

The timely, two-hour CTV Original Movie takes a smart and lighthearted look at an important historical moment, digging underneath the constitutional crisis of the time to reveal a true homegrown David and Goliath story. Scheduled to mark the anniversary of the Meech Lake Accord in early June, Elijah premieres Sunday, May 25 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV (visit CTV.ca to confirm local listings).
