Blockades or breakthroughs? : Aboriginal peoples confront the Canadian state by Yale Deron Belanger( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and French and held by 988 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blockades have become a common response to Canada's failure to address and resolve the legitimate claims of First Nations. Blockades or Breakthroughs? debates the importance and effectiveness of blockades and occupations as political and diplomatic tools for Aboriginal people. The adoption of direct action tactics like blockades and occupations is predicated on the idea that something drastic is needed for Aboriginal groups to break an unfavourable status quo, overcome structural barriers, and achieve their goals. But are blockades actually "breakthroughs"? What are the objectives of Aboriginal people and communities who adopt this approach? How can the success of these methods be measured? This collection offers an in-depth survey of occupations, blockades, and their legacies, from 1968 to the present. Individual case studies situate specific blockades and conflicts in historical context, examine each group's reasons for occupation, and analyze the media labels and frames applied to both Aboriginal and state responses. Direct action tactics remain a powerful political tool for First Nations in Canada. The authors of Blockades or Breakthroughs? Argue that blockades and occupations are instrumental, symbolic, and complex events that demand equally multifaceted responses. Contributors include Yale D. Belanger, Tom Flanagan, Sarah King, P. Whitney Lackenbauer, David Rossiter, John Sandlos, Nick Shrubsole, and Timothy Winegard. -- Provided by publisher
Battle grounds : the Canadian military and aboriginal lands by P. Whitney Lackenbauer( )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Base closures, use of airspace for weapons testing and low-level flying, environmental awareness, and Aboriginal land claims have focused attention in recent years on the use of Native lands for military training. But is the military's interest in Aboriginal lands new? Battle Grounds analyzes a century of government-Aboriginal interaction and negotiation to explore how the Canadian military came to use Aboriginal lands for training. It examines what the process reveals about the larger and evolving relationship between governments and Native communities, and how increasing Aboriginal assertiveness and activism have affected the issue."--Jacket
Two years below the Horn : Operation Tabarin, field science, and Antarctic sovereignty, 1944-1946 by Andrew Taylor( )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'Two Years Below the Horn, ' engineer Andrew Taylor vividly recounts his experiences and accomplishments during Operation Tabarin, a landmark British expedition to Antarctica to establish sovereignty and conduct science during the Second World War. When mental strain led the operation's first commander to resign, Taylor--a military engineer with extensive prewar surveying experience--became the first and only Canadian to lead an Antarctic expedition. As commander of the operation, Taylor oversaw construction of the first permanent base on the Antarctic continent at Hope Bay. From there, he led four-man teams on two epic sledging journeys around James Ross Island, overcoming arduous conditions and correcting cartographic mistakes made by previous explorers. The editors' detailed afterword draws on Taylor's extensive personal papers to highlight Taylor's achievements and document his significant contributions to polar science. This book will appeal to readers interested in the history of polar exploration, science, and sovereignty. It also sheds light on the little known contribution of a Canadian to a distant theatre of the Second World War. The wartime service of Major Taylor reveals important new details about a groundbreaking operation that laid the foundation for the British Antarctic Survey and marked a critical moment in the transition from the heroic to the modern scientific era in polar exploration."--

A historical and legal study of sovereignty in the Canadian north : terrestrial sovereignty, 1870-1939 by Gordon W Smith( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Terrestrial Sovereignty provides the most comprehensive documentation yet available on the post-Confederation history of Canadian sovereignty in the north. As Arctic sovereignty and security issues return to the forefront of public debate, this invaluable resource provides the foundation upon which we may expand our understanding of Canada's claims from the original transfers of the northern territories in 1870 and 1880 through to the late twentieth century. The book provides a wealth of detail, ranging from administrative formation and delineation of the northern territories through to other activities including government expeditions to northern waters, foreign whaling, the Alaska boundary dispute, northern exploration between 1870 and 1918, the background of Canada's sector claim, the question concerning Danish sovereignty over Greenland and its relation to Canadian interests, the Ellesmere Island affair, the activities of American explorers in the Canadian North, and the Eastern Arctic Patrol. The final chapter examines the Eastern Greenland case and its implications for Canada "--
The Canadian Rangers : a living history by P. Whitney Lackenbauer( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Canadian Rangers stand sentinel in the farthest reaches of our country. For six decades, this dedicated group of citizen-soldiers has quietly served as Canada's eyes, ears, and voice in isolated coastal and northern communities. How does this minimally trained and lightly equipped force make a meaningful contribution to national defence and to sustainable communities? One of Canada's leading experts on northern issues answers this question using official records, extensive interviews, and on-the-ground participation in Ranger exercises from coast to coast to coast. The Canadian Rangers also tells the untold story of a successful partnership that has developed between the Canadian Forces and Aboriginal peoples, a partnership rooted in traditional knowledge and skills and characterized by acceptance and crosscultural understanding. P. Whitney Lackenbauer is an associate professor and chair of the Department of History at St. Jerome's University"--Provided by publisher

The hidden Pierre Elliott Trudeau : the faith behind the politics( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much has been written about the political and personal life of Pierre Elliott Trudeau, but little has been said, even by the man himself, about his faith and how it shaped him. Here we discover the faith behind the politics of one of Canada's best-known public figures. This collection of essays, by a range of key politicians, biographers, journalists and scholars, explores such topics as the man and his beliefs; his words on "the bedrooms of the nation"; the privatization of religion; faith and personal experience; faith and public life; and the dignity of the individual

Aboriginal peoples and military participation : Canadian and international perspectives( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The CF prides itself on being a national institution that reflects and promotes the values of a diverse country. This includes Canada’s Aboriginal peoples who have a proud history and tradition of military service extending from the colonial period, through the world wars, to contemporary operations. These historical and contemporary relationships are seldom explored beyond the narrow confines of our own national experience. Yet there have been, and continue to be, parallels in other indigenous populations with a strong record of military service. The chapters in this pioneering volume contribute to cross-cultural awareness by offering a critical, comparative approach to understanding Aboriginal peoples’ military service in Canada and around the world."--back cover

Mackenzie King : citizenship and community : essays marking the 125th anniversary of the birth of William Lyon Mackenzie King( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Lyon Mackenzie King was born in Berlin, Ontario, now known as Kitchener. The town was unusual in Victorian Ontario in being largely German in origin and mixed in religion. In this book some of Canada's leading experts on King and his times describe aspects of King's youth in Berlin, his fascination with posterity, his early interest in sociology, and the impact of his unusual community on his later political attitudes. Among the topics explored are King's concern to preserve Canadian sovereignty in the north during the Second World War; his handling of relations with the United States over the war in the Pacific; his attitudes, typical for their time, toward Asians; his approach to social welfare programs; and his difficulties with western Canada. Mackenzie King has been regarded as perhaps the most successful of Canadian prime ministers; these essays both evaluate that success and bring new insight to bear on this remarkable leader.

Kurt Meyer on trial : a documentary record( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In late 1945, a Canadian military court sitting in occupied Germany convicted Waffen-SS General Kurt Meyer on charges related to the murder of Canadian prisoners of war in Normandy. It was Canada's first entry into the war crimes field and the trial raised several important operational and legal issues, particularly with regard to command responsibility. Although sentenced to death by firing squad, Meyer was saved by the controversial decision of Canadian military authorities to commute the sentence and was released after less than a decade of imprisonment in New Brunswick and West Germany. Meyer's war crimes trial and the final result caused consternation and outrage among the Canadian public at the time. It remains among the most contentious episodes in Canadian military history. This collection brings together previously unpublished documents related to Canada's prosecution of Kurt Meyer, including the original trial transcript and selected materials to situate the trial in its political, military, diplomatic and legal context"--Page 4 of cover
Canada's Rangers : selected stories, 1942-2012( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Canadian Rangers (often mistakenly called the Arctic Rangers) are a sub-component of the Canadian Forces reserve that provide a military presence in Canada's sparsely settled northern, coastal, and isolated areas. Formally established on May 23, 1947, a primary role of this part-time force is to conduct surveillance or sovereignty patrols (SOV PATS) as required. Some Canadian Rangers also conduct inspections of the North Warning System (NWS) sites and act as guides, scouts, and subject matter experts in such disciplines as wilderness survival when other forces (such as Army units of the Regular Force or Primary Reserve) are in their area of operations. The Canadian Rangers are a volunteer force made up of Inuit, First Nations [Aboriginal or Native peoples], Métis and non-Aboriginals; however, it is a common misconception that the organization is a First Nations entity. The ethnic make-up of the numerous patrols across Canada is entirely an element of geography. Canadian Rangers are paid according to the rank they hold within their patrol and when present on operations or during training events."
