Canadians neglect the past at their peril, says Dominion Institute co-founder. by Phil Koch.
In Who We Are, Rudyard Griffiths turns to two historical periods where, he believes, Canadian institutions and values were formed by great efforts of nation building. These aren’t the famous battles of Vimy Ridge or Juno Beach, or even the time of Confederation.
Rather, Griffiths points first to the years between the rebellions of 1838 and the creation of responsible government in 1848, and then, a century later, to the governments of Louis St. Laurent following World War II.
