Lest we forget

On this week's episode of Progressive Voices, I speak with Nora Loreto, writer, musician and activist based in Québec City. Nora provides critical analysis of Remembrance Day and what it means for Canadian society -- in particular, the jingoism of Remembrance Day, the symbolism of the red poppy and the Canadian culture of war.
