The resurgence of the far right in Canada poses serious challenges for the left. Join us for a two-part series to discuss who and what are driving the re-emergence of the far right, its political impact from a leftist perspective, and strategies for building a mass movement to oppose it. Our first event on April 9, 2022 at 2pm EST will be a webinar featuring Todd Gordon, Sarah Jama, and Cam Scott on the recent convoy and how to situate it within a broader history of Canadian colonialism and fascism. This series is hosted by Alberta Advantage, Briarpatch, Upping the Anti: A Journal of Theory and Action, and Midnight Sun. It is endorsed by Between the Lines and Canadian Dimension.
