Year in Review 2017

Year in Review 2017
As 2017 comes to a close, we look back on some of the stories we have been proud to share. Among them: Luke Savage’s essay on the history left out of the Canada 150 narrative; Hayden King on how the study and practice of foreign policy erases Indigenous thought; our own Catherine Tsalikis’s extensive report on an evolving Canadian foreign service; and Michael Petrou’s look at the agencies that conduct surveillance in Canada. 

We look forward to delving into more in the New Year. In the meantime, many thanks to our readers in Canada and beyond for your engagement and for your support of OpenCanada.org. 

Have a wonderful holiday season!
