“Whose Past? A Public Forum on Harper’s Review of Canadian History” will be a spirited discussion about the Harper Conservatives’ recent moves to review Canadian history through a Parliamentary committee. The forum will include perspectives from a secondary school educator, an indigenous scholar, a range of generations as well as from historians from Eastern and Western Canada and from Quebec. Speakers will be limited to five minutes each, to provide plenty of time for broader discussion. Moderator: Dave Obee, Editor-in-Chief, Victoria Times Colonist.
Co-sponsored by the Canadian Historical Association and the Department of History, University of Victoria.
