HAT Monthly Meeting, Sat. Nov. 12, Matthew Bin, 1:30pm

HAT Monthly Meeting, Sat. Nov 12, 1:30pm, OISE, 252 Bloor Street West. Room 10-200 Speaker: Matthew Bin Topic: Canadian Peacekeeping: a Humanist Perspective. Matt Bin is an author, consultant, and humanist officiant living in Oakville. His book, "On Guard for Thee: Canadian Peacekeeping Missions", was published by Toronto's Bookland Press. It provides a vital oral history of the peacekeeping missions undertaken by Canada's armed forces in the modern age. Veterans of every Canadian mission from the first Gulf War to Afghanistan are interviewed in the book, including stirring first-hand accounts from Haiti, the former Yugoslavia, and the Rwandan genocide. As we consider Canada's role on the international stage, it is important that we keep in mind the heavy toll that these conflicts take on the young men and women who do the job on our behalf. Please come and hear him speak on November 12, 1:30pm at OISE.
