Deschênes Commission

Prime Minister Brian Mulroney orders an official inquiry into the presence of Nazi war criminals in Canada. The commission finds evidence against 20 individuals, and recommends changes to criminal and citizenship law in Canada. Only a small number of cases are pursued following the two-year commission.
