Stevie Cameron joins me now. The investigative journalist and bestselling author has just published a big book On the Far: Robert William Pickton and the Tragic Story of Vancouver’s Missing Women. She was last on for her previous book on this case, The Pickton File. We talked three years ago about this book, as the last book was more of a memoir of her covering the case rather than the details of Pickton, his life, the women who went missing, the murders and the trial. This book, On the Farm, covers all of that, as it’s the first comprehensive book on the case. As a matter of fact, one of the trial’s prosecutors said, this book is ‘the bible on the case.’ Stevie Cameron was a political correspondent for the Ottawa Citizen and the Globe and Mail, she was a host of the fifth estate, as well as the editor-in-chief of Elm Street magazine. Her previous books include On the Take, The Last Amigo, and Ottawa Inside Out. Her website is at www.steviecameron.com. On the Farm is published by Knopf. Please welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, Stevie Cameron; Good morning, Ms. Cameron.
