Inside the Secret World of Ottawa and the RCMP
Paul Palango is the author of three authoritative books about the RCMP. His latest, Dispersing the Fog, is an expose of the relationship between politics and the justice system in Canada since the 1980s. Anyone who cares about the rule of law in Canada will find this book an extraordinary eye-opener.
China-watchers will be especially interested in the references to Project Sidewinder, the ill-fated inquiry triggered by whistleblower Brian McAdam's discovery in the early 1990's that the Canadian immigration system in Hong Kong had been infiltrated by organized crime. Hundreds of Chinese triad members were having their criminal records expunged from the mission's computers so that they could migrate to Canada and set up shop here.
