This week on the New World Next Week: a Native Canadian protest movement upends Canada’s politics as usual; France moves into Mali and America prepares to move into Algeria in the latest invasion of Africa; and Orlando may be backing down on its garden vegetable crackdown.
While Canada enjoys a reputation as a peacekeeper on the world stage, its history proves it to be anything but. In his new book “The Ugly Canadian: Stephen Harper’s Foreign Policy,” author and activist Yves Engler explores how the Harper government is trying to further militarize Canada and create a change in perception of Canada’s foreign policy. Find out more in this week’s GRTV Feature Interview with your host James Corbett and our special guest, Yves Engler.
Author and researcher Yves Engler joins us to discuss his new book, The Ugly Canadian: Stephen Harper’s Foreign Policy. Subjects discussed include the real origin of the UN peacekeeping idea, the growth of Canadian militarism under Harper and the role that activists have played in increasing anti-war sentiment over the past half century.
Dan Dicks of PressForTruth.tv and PressForTruth.ca joins us tonight to discuss his forthcoming documentary, “The Turning Point.” Set for release next Monday, “The Turning Point” will document the 2012 Bilderberg conference in Chantilly, Virginia and the Canadian side of the shadowy organization. We also talk about various aspects of the Canadian police state.
