Larry Hannant
"The latest issue of Press for Conversion! "Captive Canada," was packed with background that I didn't know (even though I'm an historian). 

"Especially intriguing were the family histories of prominent Canadians on the left, from J.S.Woodsworth to the NDP's Desmond Morton, which showed their long tradition of racism and imperialism. I didn't realise Morton was the grandson of Sir William Otter, who oversaw Canada's WWI concentration camps.

"Family is very important in forming many people's politics and world outlook. Your examination of the slave-owning and Confederate family of Cold-War RCMP Commissioner Stuart Taylor Wood (who himself was an arch-conservative) is a good illustration of that."
