  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Canada as Safe Haven? The Migration of War Resisters from the United States

    Wilfrid Laurier University’s International Migration Research Centre will host a lecture and documentary screening on American war resisters from the Vietnam war and the war in Iraq, Friday May 4 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the CIGI Auditorium on Erb Street in Waterloo.

    “This documentary is about how people from the strongest military power needed Canada and Canadians to resist war,” said the film producer and Laurier Professor Alison Mountz. “This topic matters now more than ever. We can learn from the past at a time when we need to understand what role Canada will play when people are seeking a safe haven from the U.S.”

    The event, titled “Canada as Safe Haven? The Migration of War Resisters from the United States,” features a short screening of the documentary-in-progress Canada as Safe Haven? by director Lisa Molomot. The film is based on Mountz’s research into the topic. The event will also feature a keynote address and panel of people featured in the film.
