Episodes Notes

David Languedoc (born Alfie Petonoquot) has worn the label "incorrigible” since he was a toddler.

Born on a reserve in Ontario in 1955, Alfie lost both parents by the time he was 3. Placed in the care of Ontario's Children's Aid Society, Alfie endured a revolving door of foster families — 18 in all — by the time he was 4, cementing his nickname in the minds of those around him and securing his placement in an orphanage with more than 60 other native children.
