When police reporter John McFadden showed up to an RCMP press conference, he was told he was barred from the event because of unspecified "unprofessional and disrespectful conduct." That conduct? Reporting on the RCMP.

Bomb shelters! CND! Radioactive teeth! Nuking the Carolinas! Banned BBC output! 

All this and more in the potentially unlucky episode 13 of American History Too!

Includes bonus attempt by me to gain pop-culture relevance points. I fail badly as my much younger co-host displays even less awareness of terrible current pop music.
On the thirteenth episode of American History Too! we embark on our very first sequel – picking up where episode six left off in our discussion of Nuclear Fallout. Why did one researcher collect thousands of baby teeth and why are her results quite ter...

The energy sector has flooded Canada's media with money, be it in ad dollars, speaking fees, charitable donations or "native content" partnerships. What this has bought, in effect, is a lack of critical mainstream discourse on oil and the environment. The National Observer has launched to counter this reality. Linda Solomon Wood is its founder, and she speaks to Jesse about her effort.

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the Second Battle of Ypres, the first of many battles that soldiers of the Canadian Corps would fight in during the First World War, a war that looms large in Canada’s national mythology.  Mark Osborne Humphries reflects on the popular myth that Canada "came of age" during the war:

The war was far more divisive than the popular myth would have us believe. Ukrainian-Canadian immigrants, coaxed to the Prairies a decade earlier with the promise of cheap land, were rounded up and interned as enemy aliens. The press was censored; civil rights were suspended across the country.

Aboriginal Canadians could not even vote – neither could women until Sir Robert Borden granted selective suffrage in order to prop up his Union government. In 1918, French-Canadian protesters in Quebec City opposed to conscription were even gunned down with machine guns fired by English-speaking troops specially brought in from Ontario. This is hardly the stuff of myth and legend.

But perhaps the idea that Canada came of age during the Great War is true in another sense. It was during the 1914-18 war that Canadians first began to talk about what our role in the world should be.
Massive Canadian casualties in April, 1915, started a debate that continues: What is our role in the world?

Archaeologists have discovered bronze and other artifacts dating back some 1,000 years and suggesting trade between East Asia and the New World before the exploits of Christopher Columbus. Check out these photos of the excavation and artifacts.
