Bouvier, Victoria – Canadian Social Studies, 2018
I remember the exact day when I received the email inviting me to participate on a panel speaking to the notion of "post-truth," and how perplexed I was by the idea that we, in Canada, might be post-truth or that truth might be dead (Scherer, 2017). Post-truth is defined as "relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective…

den Heyer, Kent – Canadian Social Studies, 2018
[W]hen I hear people denounce our political scene as "post-truth," I have to wonder when exactly they think it was that politics was determined by the truth? The same goes for those who decry today's "fake news." […]To claim that with Trump's election we've entered a post-truth era of fake news is to claim that the U.S. was…

Macdonald, and Cornwallis as unworthy of public commemoration are warranted and necessary, particularly as each was instrumental in cementing settler-colonial projects of dominion and erasure of Indigenous populations.

It seems…
