Wild and bizarre crime stories from Canada's past
A look at the funny, sad, and sometimes mysterious history of crime in Canada. Author Ted Staunton presents history with humour and candour as he tells about the thieves, murderers, tricksters and traitors that rarely find their way into history books.
With cartoon-like illustrations in every chapter, this book reveals the antics of some of our more infamous citizens. There are tales of swindle, political bribery, rum-running and missing persons in a time when police forces were non-existent. Readers will also discover how Canada learned to cope with its crime through early criminal investigations, the rise of the RCMP and the world's first crime lab. The history lessons in this book are designed to entertain in this fast-paced adventure through our criminal past.
