Williams, Kenneth T. (Cree). Gordon Winter. Scirocco Drama, 2012. Drama.

30. Gordon Winter (Williams)Publisher’s Description: Gordon Winter is an RCMP hero, a life-long champion of First Nations rights, and a bigot. He’s challenging the next generation of chiefs to stand up to the federal government when he spews a Nazi-inspired racist and homophobic rant. Suddenly, one of the most revered First Nations leaders is now one of the most reviled human beings in Canada. While most want to consign Winter to the dustbin of history, some are quick to defend a man who did so much good in his life. Questions get asked: how should society respond to such outrageous comments from a prominent and public figure? Is it right to condemn a man based on just one moment of his life? Where did these convictions come from?
