Wilson Center: Canada, a Country Without a History?

Wilson Center: Canada, a Country Without a History?. “Stacks of archival records from the Cold War remain inaccessible at Library and Archives Canada. Take, as just one example, this run of folders on the Bandung Conference of Afro-Asian states, starting with the first one in 1955. Open the tabs in the online catalogue and there’s a list of 32s. In other words, even though it’s been 67 years since the first conference, we still can’t see Canadian assessments regarding how and why this gathering might have mattered from Ottawa’s vantage point. By the time we are into records from the 1970s and 1980s, the situation is far worse.”
