Upheaval across Canada's Landscape of Commemoration

Evening Series
Free
Commanda Bridge

Guest Speakers

Randy Boswell, Journalist and Carleton University Professor


Details

A column by Randy Boswell in the Ottawa Citizen led to Ottawa Council this year renaming the Prince of Wales Bridge as the "Chief William Commanda Bridge". We are surrounded by statues and place names honouring the architects of Canada's residential school system.  Others commemorate slave owners who opposed abolition. Are there those who are more deserving of recognition?

Join Randy as he investigates the ongoing controversy over our commemorative landscape and explores whether there are constructive, healing ways forward.

This speaker series will take place via Zoom. All are welcome to attend without charge.

View Randy's full presentation on the HSO YouTube channel.
