The government’s secret interference is really shocking, not just for me, but for all Canadians who think differently than our current Prime Minister. In a true democracy multiple points of view are allowed. The government’s insistence on controlling the message—to the point where people are silenced, and blacklisted, is a serious infringement on our rights. That’s why I took my art to the streets of Ottawa. And why I wrote ‘Banned on the Hill’”Banned on the Hill is a collection of eight visual essays. Through entertaining, powerful and humorous real-life storytelling, James show us how to speak the hard truths -- and get heard. She shows us why actions speak louder than words and how each of us can make a difference in our front yards, our city, our country and our world.Available on Amazon.com and FrankeJames.com.
