A new book by Ian McKay and Jamie Swift argues that the myth of Canada as a peaceable kingdom has been replaced by the story of Canada as a nation of warriors. The authors look back at past wars that Canada has fought in and forward to the changing role of the military in current-day Canadian society. Jamie Swift is an award-winning author, journalist and activist. He speaks with Redeye host Mordecai Briemberg.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
