The Quiet CanadiansBook - 2004
Son, idealistic young man,
University Graduate, Peace Officer
Canadian government sanctioned Assassin.
Chance meetings with highly skilled and motivated people; direct a young man into a world of deception and pain.
The Quiet Canadians is a fictional look into Canada's involvement in covert or clandestine activities. It presents a view of how such men are recruited into this profession and trained. It delves into how the men justify their activities to themselves, and how the government does likewise. It also portrays the child that becomes the operative. In this book, a series of chance meetings and, to an extent, fate, steers a child toward a lifestyle in a necessary, yet unacknowledged professional segment of society.
The novel begins in Western Canada, and moves to the Ottawa region of Ontario. There is a small portion of the book, which moves the theatre of action to Japan and Europe, returning to Canada for the conclusion.
This book is designed so people who read it can identify with the wrongs, and the justifications for actions stemming from those wrongs. It shows that Canadians can play a significant role in the world's affairs without being boisterous or arrogant about themselves. We quietly perform and let the results speak for themselves.
