Canada is an extraordinary country, with a proud history and a promising future.

Understanding where we came from and the importance of Canadian achievements is the best antidote to the fervent anti-Canadian mob. Canadians must reject and combat modern efforts to erase our history and paint one-dimensional caricatures demonizing historical figures and past events.

Our guest on today’s special Dominion Day episode of the True North Speaker Series is Dr. Brian Lee Crowley. Brian is the managing director of the Macdonald Laurier Institute and Canada’s foremost public intellectual and scholar on Canadian history and public policy.

True North’s Candice Malcolm and Dr. Brian Lee Crowley discuss what makes Canada so unique, the many great accomplishments of Sir John A Macdonald, reasons to celebrate our history and early leaders and the building of a Canadian ideal.

Founder and Editor-In-Chief of True North.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
