In the New Oxford Book of Canadian Verse edited by Margaret Atwood, Douglas Campbell  Scott  is featured in 11 pages.  The grandeur of nature and the lives of Aboriginals figure prominently in his beautiful and haunting verse. The same Douglas Campbell Scott is also regarded as the architect of some of the most brutal policies governing Indian residential schools at the turn of the 20th century.  Montreal journalist and author Mark Abley presents a well-researched, accessible, new biography that tries to understand this disparity.

In Uganda, a new bill threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. David Kato, Uganda's first openly gay man, and retired Anglican Bishop Christopher Senyonjo work against the clock to defeat state-sanctioned homophobia. But one year into filming and just three weeks after a landmark legal victory, David is brutally murdered. This depicts the last year in the life of a courageous man whose wisdom, achievements and memory has inspired a new generation of human rights advocates.
