Despite millions spent on 1812 ads and their self-proclaimed appreciation of history, Conservatives are actually attacking our history, at museums, archives, and national historic sites.
After nearly destroying Library and Archives, the government is now about to “reform” the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Conservatives propose to eliminate research and collections from the Museum’s mission, and “rebrand” this national museum based on their own idea of ‘Canadian identity'”. Bill C-49, which would do just that, will be back in Parliament in just a few days.
If you would like to support keeping current Museum of Civliization intact, and tell the Conservatives not to change our history, head to http://petition.ndp.ca/history.
