Canada's Nuclear Weapons
Canada's Nuclear Weapons

Listen
AIR DATE: September 24, 2013

Most people, including Canadians themselves, think of Canada as a peace-loving and neighborly. During the first two decades of the Cold War, the country tried to develop nuclear weapons and later, Canadians ignored that as they rewrote history around the image of a good world citizen. Sean Maloney says that Canadians need to recover this lost history of the Cold War and he'll be lecturing at Atomic Liquors on "The Canadian Armed Services and Cold War Nuclear Testing."

GUESTS

Dr. Sean Maloney, Professor of History, Royal Military College of Canada
