Burden of Truth
(Season Premiere, HD, TV-14, DV)
SEASON PREMIERE – The Oro North mining project has divided opinion in Millwood, but Joanna Chang (Kristin Kreuk) has firmly chosen a side. She’s taken on the case of Helen Graham (guest star Pamela Matthews), a local farm owner whose land is standing firmly in the way of the mine’s opening. With the tide of opinion turning against them, Joanna arranges for an improved offer, but - after many sleepless nights with her new baby - Joanna makes a crucial error that changes the case, leading to shocking consequences. Billy Crawford (Peter Mooney) is torn between his support for Helen’s case and for Millwood’s future, but after a tumultuous start to their lives as parents, he is mostly concerned with Joanna.
