Surprised by the absence of First Nations People in his congregation, he began to reach out to them. His involvement with the local Native community led to a deeper investigation of Canada’s hidden history of genocide. He was ultimately expelled from the United Church and shunned by the mainstream media for what he uncovered. Unrepentant tells the story of what he found.
