Tommy Douglas and the RCMP

Our own Bill Waiser and Steve Hewitt (department alumnus now working at the University of Birmingham) were interviewed by CBC's Michael Enright on the RCMP surveillance of Tommy Douglas over three decades. The subject of the show explores why those files are closed till this day.

This fascinating interview is still available as a podcast (May 16, The Sunday Edition) at:
