Canada's Dark Side

Indigenous People's and Canada's 150th Celebration

Susan Neylan / Origins, The Ohio State University and Miami University of Ohio | Jun 10, 2021

Canada’s Dark Side uses Canada’s 150th anniversary celebrations of 2017 as a means to shine light on the ways Aboriginal Peoples have been treated by the Canadian government and examines how Canada’s motto of “Peace, Order and Good Government” has not applied to Indigenous people. The essay is augmented by maps, photos, video, and related links.
