"Richard Sanders' new work in the Spring 2016 issue of
Press for Conversion! exposes and dispels the lies that throughout
Canada's history justified its wrongdoing. As Sanders shows, these lies,
sometimes called 'myths,' hold our minds captive, preventing accurate
perception of the conditions of our existence that follow from history.
"To strip away this veil of lies exposes the frailty of the
heroes of our immaturity. Not easy work this, either in the writing or
reading, but essential in order to understand Canada, and to restore honour to
the legacy we leave for coming generations. The impressive compilations of
historical research and the insightful writing make this a foundational
document for the praiseworthy task."
