Source: redicecreations.com, Council of European Canadians, Dr. Ricardo Duchesne

July 28, 2014-Ricardo Duchesne teaches sociology and world history at The University of New Brunswick. His publications include one book, 45 refereed articles, one chapter, 13 encyclopedia entries, and 18 non-refereed articles. His book, The Uniqueness of Western Civilization, a major work of 528 pages, was released in February 2011. Currently he is doing research on multiculturalism and the identity crisis of the West.

We’ll begin discussing Vancouver City Council’s vote to investigate discriminatory laws and policies imposed by Whites on Chinese immigrants in the city between 1886 and 1947, in order to come up with recommendations for "reconciliation efforts." The approved motion was initiated by Chinese Councilor Raymond Louie. It also calls for staff to report back to council with recommended actions for further compensation and reconciliation efforts. Ricardo is facing complaints after calling Vancouver’s plan an exercise in manipulating white guilt.

Then, he’ll discuss how European Canadian history is presented only negatively in Canadian schools, ignoring the pioneering spirit and great accomplishments. We’ll also discuss the erroneous argument being made that all European countries are immigrant countries and that nations are made strong by diversity. Ricardo also talks about the Canadian model of immigration and multiculturalism. -redicecreations.com
