Memorial Presents: Not a Nation? (Or Does Newfoundland Nationalism Make Historical Sense?)

Nationalistic fervour is awakening in Newfoundland and Labrador. Buoyed by oil wealth and encouraged by Federal-Provincial wrangling, some are waving the Pink-White-and-Green flag and envisioning a future unencumbered by Confederation. Is this neo-nationalistic rhetoric useful, or does it instead distract us from the main issues? Does it provide a useful vehicle for mobilizing public support, or can it unleash an unhealthy division within society? Does it even make sense in a historical context?Go to the event page
