This book also highlights some great Canadian heros who joined with Aboriginal peoples to bring attention to the tragedy of residential schols like Dr. PH Bryce who wrote the report the book is titled after "A National Crime" in 1922 saying that one in two Aboriginal children were dying in the schools from preventable disease or S.H. Blake, a leading human rights lawyer, who claimed Canada brought itself into "unpleasant nearness to manslaughter" when it ignored Bryce's report.
For Canadians,students and human rights advocates interested in preventing ongoing human rights abuses perpetrated by governments, including our own, this is a must read!
