    Most interesting. A part of Toronto’s history few know. I was not taught this in school. Shocking!

“Violent August is a triumph in its revelation of the Toronto Greek experience. Teachable moments on the politics of war and the effects of anti-immigrant racism makes this documentary required viewing for all who truly want to understand the other side of the Canadian experience.”
