Perry Snow on The Adoption Show

Edit - Thanks to Cathy from Looking in Ontario for the following link which is relative to this show:

The British Home Children registry was set up by the British Isles Family
History Society of Greater Ottawa in co-operation
with Library and Archives Canada. Their registry is searchable, and they have a couple of other searchable databases as well.

Perry Snow is the author of Neither Waif Nor Stray - The Search for a Stolen Identity

Perry's father, the late Frederick George Snow, was one of the 100,000 British Home Children (alleged orphans) sent to Canada by over 50 British Child Care organizations. These 4-15 year old children worked as indentured farm labourers and domestic servants until they were 18 years old. The British Child Care organizations professed a dominant motive of providing these children with a better life than they would have had in Britain, but they had other ignoble and pecuniary motives.
