The Far-Right in New Brunswick: A Panel on Extremism and Exclusion
Far–right politics and violence is not only a phenomenon in the U.S. but also in Canada, including in New Brunswick, the unceded territories of the Wolastoqiyik, Mi’kmaq, and Passamaquoddy.
Join a panel on the latest research on the far–right in New Brunswick and analysis of the nature of extremism and exclusion found in the anti-bilingual rhetoric of last year’s provincial election in New Brunswick. This panel is timely as both New Brunswick and Canada begin reviews of legislation on official languages.
Tuesday, February 23 at 7:00pm Atlantic time
