Le Livre noir du Canada Anglais
Le Livre noir du Canada Anglais is a series of three book written by Quebec journalist Normand Lester . The essays relate what are, from the author's point of view, historical fabrications and injustices in Canada, notably those against the Quebecois, Jewish and aboriginal peoples.
The books are meant as a response to the Quebec bashing of the English Canadian press (following the 1995 Quebec referendum) and the propaganda offensive of Ottawa against the Quebec sovereignty movement that would later develop into the Sponsorship scandal.
Volume one was first to reveal the secret funding of fascist Adrien Arcand by former Canadian Prime Minister R. B. Bennett. Its publication resulted is the suspension of Lester by the Société Radio-Canada, which was criticized as an attack on free speech by an organization suspected by some of a federalist bias.
