If you're interested in the issue of war resistance and the history of war resisters in both Canada and the US, you'll want to be at the Steelworkers Hall in Toronto next weekend, September 23 and 24. A major conference is taking place, organized by Historians Against War, and endorsed by some dozen peace, social justice and labour organizations.
People (although sadly, not me!) will be coming from all over Canada and the US to attend. I'm sure it will be a fascinating and energizing weekend. If you're in the area, you can stop by for any length of time, just to hear a presentation or two. The program listing is here.
