About the Book

My Ordeal in Canada is a narration of my tragic plight as a black man in Canada. I have been incarcerated five times by the police force and for no valid reasons whatsoever. I was also condemned to a psychiatric facility, admitted forcibly, without my consents and in violation of my rights as a Canadian citizen. Since I came to Canada in 1985 I have been subjected to many denials and deprivations by the prejudiced Canadian justice system which I have enumerated in my book in greater details. Since 2005 I experienced a number of discriminatory impediments imposed on me by the systemic racism that is prevalent in the Canadian justice system. I was prohibited from having access to my children for a total of more than ten years even though I committed no offense against any of them whatsoever. The Toronto police and the justice system treat black men like myself differently and impose their racially biased verdicts without any repercussions. This book highlights the various racist ordeals I was subjected to especially by the police and the Canadian justice system and by my employers. My deplorable and dismal predicaments, however, are not unique to me alone. They are paramount manifestations of the pathetic and pitiful trends and discriminations black men especially have to endure in racially biased Canada. It is my hope that by writing my story and experiences in Toronto I will influence and bring the required changes and to highlight the discrepancies customary and prevailing in the Toronto police and the Canadian justice system. I feel that I have a story to tell that will make Canada a better place to live in for all its citizens when the required changes are instituted.
