Canadiana documentary series tells a uniquely Ottawan Cold War story

The Canadiana documentary web series takes an entertaining look at some of Canada’s lesser-known historical episodes. It’s now into its third season and recently released some major Ottawa content. “How the Cold War was started… in Ottawa” is the story of the defection of cipher clerk Igor Gouzenko, an employee of the Soviet embassy in Ottawa during World War II. He defected just a couple of days after the war ended… and arguably started the Cold War.
