Annual Update from the President - 2015

As President of the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation, I’m writing to offer my sincere thanks for your support of the Foundation in 2014.

Early in Vincent Lam’s fine biography of Tommy Douglas we hear the story of a young Tommy gathered with some friends on a Winnipeg rooftop watching the events of the General Strike of 1919 unfold before them. They watched as hired thugs with baseball bats and revolvers charged into the midst of what had been a peaceful protest, leaving one man dead and the strike finished. It was a powerful moment for young Tommy, one that would stay with him throughout a life spent striving to build a fairer more equitable society.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

(The Sun - Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton, Winnipeg & Calgary)

Dear sirs,

Your editorial of February 28, 2011 reveals new information, courtesy of the secret RCMP file, about the past and opinions of Tommy Douglas. In fact, had the Sun done its own research with any due diligence, it would have discovered that there was nothing new or revelatory in those files. (I suggest your readers explore the three fine biographies of Douglas that are available).
