Issues part deux....
So far this term we have been examining how Canada had emerged from the 2nd World War and the burgeoning Counter Culture movement that has provided many with a stage to promote their previously unheard views. As we move out of the 1960's and into the '70's and '80's we see the beginnings (or perhaps more precisely the continuation) of rising tensions between French and English Canada that will continue to dramatically change how we look at ourselves as a nation. As well we will also examine the proliferation of tensions between the Canadian West and its big brother in the East.
As you begin to prepare for the next Issues seminar please use the STUDY GUIDE that I will provide in class and post on the blog.
If you have time please read this ARTICLE that speaks to both Western Alienation and Separatism. After you finish please comment on the questions at the end of the article.
