Softcover. On April 9, 1993, in Prince Albert, white supremacist Carney Nerland sat before a commission of inquiry into the death of Leo LaChance, a Cree from the nearby Big River Reserve. When asked about the man he had confessed to shooting, Nerland told the commission, "I apologise. I really don't remember the gentleman." The killing, after all, had occurred 27-months earlier. With these chilling words the author begins her examination of Leo's life, his family's quest for the truth, and the story of the inquiry. She has not just written the story of a crime, she has produced a thought-provoking examination of racism in Canadian society. With Frontis. 190pp. trade size p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. with no creasing to covers.
