Don’t just see the film but meet the author himself.

“This is a great honour for Maple Ridge,” says Oosha Ramsoondar, the event organizer.

“This Canadian icon has had a long and illustrious career as a publisher, politician, political activist and author always standing up for Canadian sovereignty.”

He is the founder and former chairman of the Council of Canadians, as well as National Chairman of the Committee for an Independent Canada.  He has been a strident advocate for the preservation of Canadian economic independence and was an outspoken critic of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

For his efforts in support of Canadian nationalism,  Hurtig has been honoured with many awards including the Order of Canada (1980) and the Lester B. Pearson Man of the Year Peace Award (1988).
