Reading the National Narrative

Celebrate Spring, Read Geist

Apr 8, 2014


Like the first flowers of spring, the latest issue of Geist magazine (#92) arrived this morning. It includes my column about James Daschuk's disturbing history of post-Confederation government policy toward the First Nations of the Prairie West.

"As the federal government of Canada ramps up celebrations for the looming sesquicentennial of Confederation in 2017, we do well to remind ourselves that not everyone thinks there is all that much to celebrate."

You, too, could enjoy the thrill of finding Geist in your mailbox four times a year. All you have to do is subscribe.
