What’s wrong with Canada?
Join us for a discussion of Canada’s colonialist history at home and overseas.

Canadian history is a smorgasbord of racism, colonialism and other crimes at home and around the world. Most of which are defended and even celebrated by mainstream historians and media. Join us for a look at both the criminal history of Canada’s 1% and the inspiring history of resistance from the rest of us.

The list of Canada’s crimes is long and growing. Here are articles about a few of them, roughly in chronological order. Read as many or as few as you like.
