Blood in the water : a true story of revenge in the Maritimes

Blood in the water : a true story of revenge in the Maritimes

Cameron, Silver Donald, 1937-2020, author
2020

In June 2013, three upstanding citizens of a small Cape Breton town cold-bloodedly murdered their neighbour, Phillip Boudreau, at sea. Boudreau was funny and frightening, loathed, loved, and feared. Boudreau seemed invincible, a miscreant who would plague the village forever. Silver Donald Cameron, a resident of the area since 1971, argues that the Boudreau killing was a direct reaction to credible and dire threats that the authorities were powerless to neutralize. As many local people have said, if those fellows hadn't killed him, someone else would have.

The fight for history : 75 years of forgetting, remembering, and remaking Canada's Second World War

Cook, Tim, 1971- author
2020

A masterful examination of how Canadians framed and reframed the war experience over time. Just as the importance of the battle of Vimy Ridge to Canadians rose, fell, and rose again over a 100-year period, the meaning of Canada's Second World War followed a similar pattern. By the end of the 20th century, Canada's experiences in the war were largely framed as a series of disasters. This book is about the efforts to restore a more balanced portrait of Canada's contribution in the global conflict.
