About the Book
1927 was a difficult year for the Orange Lodge. The House of Commons was now officially bilingual. French appeared on our postage stamp, refugees from continental Europe fled to Canada to share in the prosperity. The story of this play is fiction, but the historical background is not. Opportunistic Klansmen crossed our borders to prey on the fears of our citizens. The cross burning at Kingston occurred. The debate and hatemongering is documented.
