The Devil's Trick: How Canada Fought the Vietnam War

Please join the Rotary Club of Edmonton West on Monday May 17th when John Boyko will speak to the topic of his most recent book "The Devil's Trick: How Canada Fought the Vietnam War" (published in April 2021). John notes that this story will shock readers who thought they understood the tragic Vietnam war and believed that Canada had nothing or little to do with it. In fact, Canada was intricately involved as it tested who Canadians were and what we stood for. Thousands of Canadians continue to be touched by this war.

John Boyko was born in Hamilton, Ontario, grew up in Peterborough and now lives in the Village of Lakefield. He has earned degrees from Trent, Queen’s, and McMaster Universities, served on and chaired many boards, and has been elected to municipal office. You can follow John at
