"Whose Community Is It Anyways? A Prince Edward Islander's View of Banff"

In October I participated in an environmental history workshop in Banff. The event was put together by the Department of History and Classics at the University of Alberta, and my participation was funded by the folks at NiCHE. I wrote a short article based on my experience, titled "Whose Community Is It Anyways? A Prince Edward Islander's View of Banff," and it is now available here. While not particularly about the environmental movement, I do believe that there are some important dynamics at play in Banff that need to be addressed.

You can check out NiCHE's original call for applicants here.

I would like to extend my gratitude to Drs. Liza Piper and Zac Robinson for leading this event. It was a real eye-opener.

Donald Chant and the CBC Digital Archives

A while back I wrote a post highlighting some of Dr. Donald Chant's contributions to the environmental movement in Canada. (You can read it here.) In 1972 Dr. Chant was interviewed on Distinguished Canadians, a program on CBC television. If you're interested in hearing what a cutting-edge environmentalist had to say back when the movement was still developing, you won't find a better source than this. Check it out here, care of the folks at the CBC Digital Archives.
