      Lessons from Canada’s internment of the Ukrainians

      It’s a small case in a big hall. I have no idea of how many people will pause beside it, but millions of visitors will eventually tour through the Canadian History Hall. The first guests entering this newly renovated space within the Canadian Museum of History will arrive today, Canada Day, the 150th birthday of our country. Odds are more...

      Why the next Governor General should be indigenous

      Canada has achieved much in creating a compassionate, just and harmonious society. However, it needs to go a step further and appoint an indigenous person as Governor General in September, to heal the wounds in its relations with indigenous peoples. This would be the best sesquicentennial celebration of all, a powerful signal on the road to...

      Adam: Canada’s history, like you’ve never seen it before

      When I wrote recently about the lack of any notable legacy project in Ottawa to remind us of Canada’s 150 years of nationhood, folks at the Canadian Museum of History wondered if I had seen their permanent exhibition of Canadian history that opens Canada Day, July 1. I had not, and went to take a look. It is a legacy project worth its name,...

      Jazzahead! Report III: The best from the rest of the world

      My previous two posts took into account hours and hours of shows that I saw earlier this year at jazzahead! in Bremen, Germany, covering the Finnish and German components of that event’s festival series. But the three-day event in late April, which I attended as a guest of Germany’s Federal Foreign Office and Initiative Musik...

      Glavin: Canada’s oldest and best friends are barely functioning

      The political chaos that has paralyzed the United Kingdom with the crippling of Theresa May’s Conservative government at the polls Thursday is an instructive illustration of the disruptive anxiety and exhaustion sweeping the West that Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland warned about in her address to the House of Commons this week.

      Glavin: America abandoned the world under Obama – not Trump

      As an exercise in eloquently sugar-coating the facts of the shattered world order and Canada’s precarious place within the ruins, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland’s speech in the House of Commons Tuesday was a masterwork of tact and sobriety.
