'Clearing the Plains' confronts Canada's colonialism

Clearing the Plains: Disease, Politics of Starvation, and the Loss of Aboriginal Life

by James Daschuk
(University of Regina Press,
2013;
$39.95)

Official bicentennial celebrations of the "affable drunk" who founded Canada will likely mask John A. Macdonald's history of racism and deliberate starvation of First Nations, and similar policies continue today with the tar sands and fracking expansion.

James Daschuk, author of Clearing the Plains: Disease, Politics of Starvation, and the Loss of Aboriginal Life, addresses Canada's history of disease, deliberate starvation, ethnic cleansing, tar sands expansion, neglect of treaties and a legacy of colonialism that continues today.
