[OPIRG-EVENTS] book that convinced Harris to retire - author Peter Edwards - Nov. 28 @ 7 pm

Presentation by 

Peter Edwards

author of One Dead Indian the book that may have convinced Premier Mike
Harris to retire!

On September 4, 1995, several Stoney Point Natives entered Ipperwash
Provincial Park, near Sarnia, Ontario, and began a peaceful protest
aimed at reclaiming a traditional burial ground.  Within 72 hours, one
of these protesters, Anthony (Dudley) George, was dead, shot by an OPP
officer wielding a submaching gun.

Now, after six years of relentless research, investigative journalist
Peter Edwards examines the circumstances surrounding George's death.
Edwards also investigates the role Ontario Premier Mike Harris played
inthe Ipperwash crisis, citing documents that reveal the extent of his
involvement, and shows how on the heels of the Walkerton inquiry, Harris
is now being forced to answer for the night Dudley George died.
