This week, the Friends of Green Cove — a group opposed to the controversial Mother Canada statue propsed for Cape Breton Highlands National Park — revealed that Parks Canada had donated $100,000 to the project’s development. This, despite the fact that the government agency’s role is to evaluate the project’s worthiness. We speak with Dr. Sean Howard, a professor at Cape Breton University and spokesperson for the Friends.
Also joining us, is Corey Slumkoski, a history professor at Halifax’s Mount Saint Vincent University. He questions the value of the Never Forgotten Memorial, believing that it takes an uncritical look at war.
And hey, Happy Birthday, Halifax Examiner!
