Fundraiser evening with JOHN BELL
United Steelworkers Hall, 25 Cecil Street
Stephen Harper has devoted at least $28 million to glorifying the War of 1812, as part of his ongoing campaign to “rebrand” Canada as a “warrior nation”. There is a lot to remember and celebrate from this history, but it sure isn’t what Harper wants us to know about: corruption, incompetence and greed among the rulers on both sides of the border; and a powerful urge to resist war by working people in the Canadas and in the battleground states.
Come hear Socialist Worker columnist John Bell on A People’s History of the War of 1812. It’s not your Tory’s history.
