Event: Lester Pearson’s Peacekeeping: The Truth May Hurt: Yves Engler
2012 March 22, by Chapter Council
Wednesday, March 28, 7:30pm • Harry Hickman Building 105 • University of Victoria, Coast Salish and Lekwungen Territories.
Yves Engler will be launching his new book, Lester Pearson’s Peacekeeping, The Truth May Hurt, an expose of Lester Pearson’s imperialist side which raises serious social justice issues and challenges us to be clear-headed and open-eyed in appraising political leaders.
In his new book, Yves Engler sets to demolish the near saintly status of Lester Bowles (“Mike”) Pearson in the public sphere, Canadian foreign policy circles and even on the social democratic left. And in the process, he takes on the much repeated slogan that “the world needs more of Canada.”
