Pepper in our Eyes: The APEC Affair

In 1997, Canada played host to leaders of member nations of APEC, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation organization. The summit, held in Vancouver, was marked by protests and demonstrations throughout the event - and protest was quelled by the RCMP in what has become an infamous incident. The use of pepper spray against a non-violent group of student protesters shocked Canadians across the country. The repercussions of this event are far from over, with an ongoing inquiry into the government's role, the RCMP's response - and concerns over breaches to the democratic right to protest.
This book compiles a series of thoughtful essays from a broad spectrum of authors, ranging from legal expert Joel Bakan to CBC journalist Terry Milewski.
