Finding the Past in the Present

Attention lovers of history and all things Canadian: join us for a special presentation entitled Finding the Past in the Present by Trevor Tristram as he discusses how Canada’s role in the First World War and our collective memory of that event has influenced and shaped Canadian culture as we know it today. As a historian and former educator, Trevor also comes from a Canadian military lineage and was invited to escort a group of Canadian Cadets to the 100th Anniversary Ceremony of Vimy Ridge in April 2017. Trevor will use his expertise and passion for the subject to provide a fresh take on what makes us Canadian.
