#Makeitawkward Canada 150: The Elephant in The RoomNo automatic alt text available.

Tuesday, June 27, 7 pm – 9 pm

Urban Tavern

This year, Canada celebrates 150 years since Confederation. But people have lived in “Canada” for thousands of years. And for many, this birthday doesn’t mark the birth of a nation, but serves as a reminder of Canada’s dark and colonial past. Furthermore, certain communities in Canada don’t enjoy the same rights, privileges and prosperity as others. But, many of us are still proud Canadians who want to celebrate our country — work in progress though it may be. So, we’re wondering… is it possible to celebrate Canada Day without being an asshole?
