Reviews

"A compelling book that is both accessible and well-documented."--Publishers Weekly
"A Knock on the Door is a book that I hope every Canadian will read, and read deeply. The transformation of this country begins with acknowledging what happened after that knock on the door. Acknowledging, understanding the implications, and then resolving to do something for positive change. It's right that the TRC Calls to Action are included, for we are all called to action."--Shelagh Rogers "TRC Honorary Witness "
