In the years since, Anson, now 30 and an investigative journalist of some distinction (he is currently political editor of New Times magazine), has come to doubt the Warren Commission’s assertion that Oswald fired the shot that killed the President.

For two days the medicine man danced, sang and called to the spirits of the dead. He had a problem to solve. In the 3,000member Ojibway reserve on the eastern end of Manitoulin Island on Lake Huron, death by suicide has come with frightening frequency. In the past year, seven of 38 families living in the tiny village of Kaboni have lost a son or daughter to a bullet from a .22-calibre rifle, a crudely made noose or a fistful of pills.

To the average Canadian reserve Indian, the cycle is dismally familiar: unemployment, welfare, social breakdown. Work, if he can get it, gives him an annual income well below the national poverty line (per capita income of Canada’s Indians is only $1,500).

The day Canada's man in Washington gave those Yanks what for! And other fables

Well, a man can dream. My own dream is that the Canadian embassy in Washington will stop being so limp-wristed and start flexing the muscle of Canadian policy. When William Porter, the former U.S. ambassador to Ottawa, let fly with a few choice remarks on the occasion of his departure, our crew in Washington, who should have stood up and cheered this display of neighborly frankness, were apparently taken aback.
