It was once described as the biggest crime in Ontario - but no-one seemed to pay much attention to it. Highgrading, the term used to describe gold theft, has been around for centuries. But it wasn't until this century that it became an artform. Bootleg Gold is an examination and look back at the fascinating tales of gold theft and robberies that took place around the globe but with a special concentration on Northwestern Quebec and Northern Ontario - Timmins in particular - Ground Zero for the international world of gold smuggling. Imagine a city where thousands of people have kept the same secret for more than 100 years. It's the history book that should have been written ages ago.
