Jamie Swift, co-author (along with Ian McKay) of Warrior Nation: Rebranding Canada in an Age of Anxiety participated in a panel discussion “The War of 1812: Whose War Was It, Anyway?” hosted by the Canadian Historical Association Active History Committee, in partnership with The History Education Network.
This is the bicentennial year of the war of 1812 and the federal government has dedicated millions of dollars to commemorate it, but what are we really commemorating and why? Jamie Swift shares his thoughts. For more on the event see www.activehistory.ca.

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, while striving to make it sustainable as well. 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 main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
