I saw the performance of this song at the Strand in Rockland, Maine. It is about Saskatoon's infamous "freezing deaths." These deaths were caused by members of the Saskatoon Police Service, officers of which arrested Aboriginal men (usually for drunkenness and/or disorderly behavior), drove them out of the city in the dead of winter, and abandoned them there. The practice was known as taking Aboriginal people for "starlight tours."
