Summary, etc.:
Throughout his career, Calvin Lawrence experiences hostility and racism within the force - completely contrary to the office values and image of the RCMP. Standing up for his rights gets him blacklisted for advancement, and ultimately leads him to clinical depression arising from workplace hostility and mistreatment. As a seventh-generation Canadian, Lawrence has written a book which lays bare key failures of Canadian police organizations.
