Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver at THECOMMENTARY.CA.
There’s an important book just published this week, Frontier Justice: The Global Refugee Crisis and What to Do About It. Its author Andy Lamey joins me now. What he’s written is described as a gripping, eye-opening exploration of the refugee crisis. I’m reading the book now, and in some parts it reads like a novel when he talks about the harrowing journey many have to undertake to escape repressive regimes. We’ll get Mr. Lamey, who joins me from Toronto this morning, to tell us about the book, the issues, social and otherwise, we all face with regards to accepting and turning away refugees and asylum-seekers. Andy Lamey is a journalist and academic whose work has appeared in the National Post, Maclean’s and The Walrus. He’s produced documentaries for the CBC’s Ideas program. Frontier Justice is published by Doubleday. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Andy Lamey; Good morning, Mr. Lamey.
