Join conductor DML for a brief history of refugees fleeing to Canada – including some from the USA! Included are short clips from rare documentary films and an interview with draft-dodger helper Mac Elrod. Then DML walks us through the latest Canadian refugee project – the Underground Reefer Railway. Finally, David interviews Renee Boje on the latest word on her case and the Kubby case, ending with the latest Kubby news clip.
