The Israeli army expelled Heidar Abu Ghosh, at the age of 14, from his West Bank village of Imwas in 1967. It was subsequently demolished along with two other villages and covered over by “Canada Park.” Heidar is touring Canada to uncover this crime for Canadians and suggesting a path towards justice and peace.
