Kerry Pither's Book "DARK DAYS" WINS 2009 City of Ottawa Book Award for English non-fiction

Jurists — authors Deborah Gorham, David Mitchell and Lawrence Scanlan — about Dark Days:

“Dark Days is a compelling and powerful book about an important subject — racism in Canada and the clandestine activities of the RCMP and CSIS. The book tells the story of four Muslim Canadians — Maher Arar, Ahmad El Maati, Abdullah Almalki and Muayyed Nureddin — all “terror suspects” tortured in Middle Eastern prisons before being released without charge. Writing with passion and empathy yet admirable restraint, Kerry Pither leaves the reader with a vivid, detailed and disturbing picture of what we do in the name of security.”
