Yves Engler, AKA “Canada’s Noam Chomsky,” is back in Nelson to discuss his latest book, A Propaganda System. Engler will argue why most Canadians believe their country is a force for good in the world despite a long history of supporting empire, racism and exploitation.
He will further detail the vast sums Global Affairs Canada, Veterans Affairs and the Department of National Defence spend articulating a one-sided version of Canada’s foreign policy. Engler will also discuss his research on the long history of government information control during war, including formal censorship, as well as extreme media bias on topics ranging from Haiti to Palestine, investment agreements to the mining industry. Don’t miss this thoughtful and engaging presentation by one of Canada’s most provocative intellectuals.
