Celebrate the role of our founders in forging Canada into a great nation

OTTAWA, June 23, 2017 – The latest edition of Inside Policy will give readers a new appreciation of Canada’s founding.

The June 2017 issue of the Macdonald-Laurier Institute’s flagship magazine marks the 150th anniversary of Confederation with  a deep dive into MLI’s Confederation Series, plus a variety of articles on how we should appreciate our country on this sesquicentennial celebration. The series of papers authored by MLI Munk Senior Fellow Alastair Gillespie, which MLI launched earlier this year, looks at what it means to be Canadian through the eyes of Canada’s Fathers of Confederation. Some of Canada’s most respected political figures have contributed their views, with Paul Martin writing about Alexander Galt, Preston Manning on George Brown, and Jean Charest and Antionne Dionne-Charest on George-Étienne Cartier.
