"McHale was not as advertised – nothing like it -- and the reason he seems so foreign, even odd, is because he’s that rarest of modern Canadian creatures – a man who acts on principle, lives and breathes it in fact. In our collective defense, there are so few of these folks around it’s little wonder we’re suspicious of them. The McHales gave up so much in what might be called, though it’s a bit of a stretch, the fight for a free Caledonia – financial security, the trappings of an ordinarily comfortable, if not affluent, life – in exchange for permanent poverty, vilification by the state and a generally sleepy press, and arrest and harassment by the OPP."
"Canadians believe that racism, supported by the law, is a legacy of the South - the American South and South Africa. That’s history. But the ugliness of institutional racism, supported by the police and the provincial government, is alive and thriving in Southern Ontario. How much longer will we accept ugly racism staining this nation? The story of Caledonia is one that has been ignored by most of the media, to their shame. This story will anger you and it should provoke you to action."
"Caledonia” will forever remain an icon of shame in the annals of Canadian justice. This book takes us behind the scenes, providing step-by-step insight into OPP operations, as they and their political masters consciously chose political correctness over the rule of law and the security of Canadian citizens. Gary McHale is the only player in this long, sordid drama to emerge with honour. He is a Canadian hero."
