Meet Mel Hurtig at Cinema Politica

Cinema Politca is launching its second season with a screening of Who Killed Canada.

This hard-hitting, fast-paced documentary, packed with graphs, statistics Canada figures, OECD comparison studies, is produced by John Riddell, and  based on Mel Hurtig’s The Truth About Canada.

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).

• See Who Killed Canada and meet Mel Hurtig on Thursday, Sept. 22 at Maple Ridge Municipal Hall, 11995 Haney Place at 7 p.m.
