JOHN BOYKO
The Devil’s Trick: How Canada Fought the Vietnam War

January 12th at 7:00pm ET

The webinar is FREE on Zoom.

Registration is required. Click HERE.

Through the lens of six remarkable people, some well-known, and others obscure, John Boyko will recount Canada’s often-overlooked involvement in the Vietnam War that began before the Americanization of that slow-motion tragedy and lasted long after the Americans left. Canada was a perhaps naive peacemaker, combatant, a cynical provider of weaponry, and a sanctuary. In uncovering Canada’s complex involvement in the Vietnam War, the many secrets and often forgotten ways that Canada not only fought the war but was shaped by its lessons and lies will be revealed.

Give War a Chance: Are Peace-Building and Stabilization a Bust after Afghanistan?

December 1st, 7:30 PM ET

The webinar is FREE on Zoom.

Registration is required, but you do not need a Zoom account to watch.

Even before the Taliban’s rapid return to power in Afghanistan, most western governments—including Canada—appeared to have abandoned their willingness to engage in peacekeeping, peace-building and/or ‘stabilization’ interventions that involved placing western ‘boots on the ground’ in support of populations who were facing large scale threats of violence. This presentation will consider why that dis-engagement has taken place, and what it means for Canada and especially the Canadian Forces.

The Ottawa Treaty Today

November 17th, 7:30 PM ET

The webinar is FREE on Zoom.

Registration is required, but you do not need a Zoom account to watch.

Register HERE 

It has been almost twenty four years since the signing of The Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and on the Destruction—popularly known as the Ottawa Treaty.

However, significant challenges remain, and there has been back-tracking. The USA, Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Iran and some others continue to decline or reject adding their signatures, and in some cases are believed to have continued to make use of these weapons in conflict; and landmines have continued to maim or kill refugees and internally displaced people seeking to return to their homes.

Hosted and moderated by Canadian Landmine Foundation chairman Alistair Edgar, this event will begin with a short ten-minute documentary on the origins of the Ottawa Treaty and Canada’s instrumental role in its creation. Our speakers, Lloyd Axworthy and Olivia R. Fernandes, will then discuss the achievements of the treaty, the threats that landmines continue to pose to innocent civilian populations, and the practical and policy challenges that remain to be addressed.
