All Andy Bryce knew about his great-grandfather was that he lived in a big house in Ottawa, and wrote Canada's first Health Code. But when he opened a box of family mementoes, he discovered that while working for the federal government, Dr. Peter Bryce had uncovered health abuses in government-funded Residential Schools. His book, The Story of a National Crime Being an Appeal for Justice to the Indians of Canada, published in 1922, revealed these abuses publicly. As Andy pieces together his ancestor's role in Canada's troubled relationship with Indigenous people, he reaches a new understanding of the need for reconciliation.
