History in the Modern World: What Canadians Can Learn About the Future from Our Past
Apr 23, 2019
“Our history and that of the country we live in determines in many ways our view of the world and how we make decisions. The old adage that “Those who do not understand history are condemned to repeat it” is well accepted as being an obvious truth, and yet people’s understanding of their personal history and that of their country is so often strongly influenced by the political and in many places the religious ideology of that point in time. In Canada we have a strong identity based at least in part on how we interpret our history, but is that identity shared by others around the world?
Anyone who is interested in how the future of Canada will play out will be interested in this very special Empire Club event where one of the world’s most renowned historians, in conversation with one of the most successful broadcasters and commentators of the past decades, dive into how Canadians can better understand their future by having a good grasp on the events and leaders who got us to where we are today”.
