Ottawa: Gift of Freedom

They fled in the thousands, packed into tiny ships searching for a life of freedom. Almost thirty years ago, people in Ottawa opened their homes took to a group of refugees known as the 'boat people.' They called their movement Project 4000 and it would change the face of the city, even the country. Brian Buckley was one of those people who volunteered to be a sponsor. And now, he's put all that history into a new book called Gift of Freedom: How Ottawa Welcomed the Vietnamese, Cambodian and Laotian Refugees. It's published by General Store Publishing House.
