North Korean refugees in Toronto carry burden of fear

“The three North Korean women will not have their faces photographed. They will not disclose their names.

But certain things they will reveal. How they ground tree bark and cooked it into a thin gruel for food. How they were sold to brokers to work as maids or “unofficial wives” in China. How starving neighbours — children as well as adults — were executed for stealing even a morsel of meat.”


How can UBC entertain North Korean “students”. How can anyone possibly defend this sordid prison nation?
