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.
Edited by W. Wesley Pue. Published by University of British Columbia Press, 2000.
