Lawrence Hill on "The Illegal" and Canada's refugee response
This week, the federal Conservatives came under fire after a Globe and Mail report alleged that the Prime Minister's Office asked immigration officials to stop processing Syrian refugees for several weeks this past spring.
As the refugee crisis continues, Lawrence Hill talks to Brent about his new book "The Illegal". The story centres around a young marathon runner from a repressive, fictional country in Africa who struggles to avoid being deported from his new home. Lawrence also talks about the federal election, and what Canada's response to the refugee crisis says about our values as a nation.
