Description

ONTARIO 150 & CANADA 150

Celebrating Ontario's and Canada's Sesquicentennial Anniversary of Confederation.

Guest speaker NATHAN TIDRIDGE will speak about his book The Queen at the Council Fire, the first book to examine the Covenant Chain relationship since its inception. In particular, the book explores the role of what Walter Bagehot calls “the Dignified Crown,” which, though constrained by the traditions of responsible government, remains one of the few institutions able to polish the Covenant Chain and help Canada along the path to reconciliation. The book concludes with concrete suggestions for representatives of the Dignified Crown to strengthen their relationships with Indigenous peoples.

A highlight of his talk will be the St. Catherine's chapel at Massey College, which has just been designated as a Chapel Royal by Her Majesty the Queen as an act of reconciliation between the Crown and Canada's Indigenous peoples.
