ORIGINS, OMISSIONS, AND OPPORTUNITIES IN CANANA
BY ESYLLT W. JONES, JAMES HANLEY, and DELIA GAVRUS
UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA PRESS
Medicare is arguably Canada’s most valued social program. As federally-supported medicare enters its second half-century, Medicare’s Histories brings together leading social and health historians to reflect on the origins and evolution of medicare and the missed opportunities characterizing its past and present. Embedding medicare in the diverse constituencies that have given it existence and meaning, contributors inquire into the strengths and weaknesses of publicly insured health care and critically examine medicare’s unfinished role in achieving greater health equity for all people in Canada regardless of race, status, gender, class, age, and ability.
Valley of the Birdtail
AN INDIAN RESERVE, A WHITE TOWN, AND THE ROAD TO RECONCILIATION
BY ANDREW STOBO SNIDERMAN AND DOUGLAS SANDERSON (AMO BINASHII)
Divided by a beautiful valley and 150 years of racism, the town of Rossburn and the Waywayseecappo Indian reserve have been neighbours nearly as long as Canada has been a country. Their story reflects much of what has gone wrong in relations between Indigenous Peoples and non-Indigenous Canadians. It also offers, in the end, an uncommon measure of hope.
