Join us for a discussion with Yves Engler and Owen Schalk about their latest book, entitled Canada’s Long Fight Against Democracy, which documents Canadian government support for the overthrow of some 20 democractically elected governments since the end of World War 2.

Yves Engler is a Montréal-based activist and author who has published 12 books. In recent years Yves has sought to mobilize activists to confront politicians through peaceful, direct action. He has interrupted about two dozen speeches/press conferences by the prime minister, ministers and opposition party leaders to question their militarism, anti-Palestinian positions, climate policies, imperialism in Haiti and efforts to topple Venezuela’s government. Read more about Yves, here.

Owen Schalk is a writer from rural Manitoba. In addition to co-authoring Canada’s Long Fight Against Democracy, he is a columnist at Canadian Dimension magazine and the author of Canada in Afghanistan: A story of military, diplomatic, political and media failure, 2003-2023. He is currently working on his third book, which details Canada’s role in the 2011 NATO war on Libya.
