Softcover. SIGNED. The author gives lively accounts of six of Canada's most controversial trials, five of murder and one of treason. Beginning with the shooting of politician Thomas D'Arcy McGee by Patrick James Whelan in 1868, he continues chronologically with the trials of Louis Riel in 1885, Ernest Chenoweth in 1900 - (the youngest Canadian ever to have been tried for murder), Wilbert Coffin in 1953, Steven Truscott in 1959 and Peter Demeter in 1974. The author offers informative and sometimes provocative observations of the changes within the Canadian legal system, and concludes that there is no reason to doubt the justice of the verdict in any of the six cases.
