"A film about gerrymander and discrimination, including an interview with former leader of the Nationalist party in Northern Ireland - Eddie McAteer.

Ireland and the making of Canada The French connection ; Grosse Ile, gateway and graveyard ; Orange and green ( visu )
2 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Four documentaries on the Irish presence in Canada. 1) Ireland and the making of Canada. The ones who wrote the basic laws and constitution at the time of the establishment of Canada are generally taken to be the English and the French. But among the group called English, the largest group were in fact Irish. 2) The French connection. Some Irish immigrants to Canada in the last century, moved straight from speaking Irish to speaking French and have never spoken English. Former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney is one of the more famous descendants of this Quebec emigration. 3) Grosse Ile, gateway and graveyard. The little island in the St. Lawrence river near Quebec, Canada, where Irish ships, full of emigrants fleeing the famine were held in quarantine. An estimated 11,000 Irish are buried on the island. 4) Orange and green. The Scots and Northern Irish imported the Orange Order into Canada a little over a century ago. Because people of Protestant religion were more acceptable to the government, supporters of the Order tended to get positions of authority particularly in Ontario. In recent times tensions have been put aside. Now Orange and Green join in celebrating both the 12th July and St. Patrick's day
