An engaging account of a formative period in Canada's political history, just as important as Senator McCarthy's Red Scare was in the US. This is an unbiased account of midnight arrests, imprisonment without trial, and forced deportation faced by those whose only crimes were unpopular political opinions. This story is an important lesson in human rights, regardless of ideology.
