EPISODE TWO

Accused of a double-murder in 1933 Daniel P. Sampson, a Black WWI veteran, was the last man to be executed in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Today, decades after his death - many questions remain unanswered. This episode sheds a light on the courts' historic grievances on matters of mental health and racism.
 

David Steeves is a Canadian barrister called to the provincial bars of Alberta, Nova Scotia, and Ontario - where he resides. David has developed a complex civil litigation practice with appearances before all levels of court in Ontario including long trials as well as judicial and private mediations. In 2009, David earned a thesis-based LL.M. at Dalhousie University where his research focused on the areas of legal history as well as legal and litigation theory. During this graduate work, David was introduced to the case of Daniel Perry Sampson and his chapter on the case in The African Canadian Legal Odyssey was awarded the inaugural Race and the Law Prize by the Nova Scotia Barristers Society in 2009 and shared the 2013 Peter Oliver Prize by the Osgoode Society for the best publication by a student in the area of Canadian legal history.
