What is Socialism with Canadian Characteristics? – TRU Newsroom
TRUCSSA is pleased to have Donald Wilson, a teacher-activist currently residing in Kamloops for this year’s lecture event.
Wilson is active in the labour movement and is co-chair of the Kamloops-Thompson Teachers’ Association Social Justice Committee. As a young student, Wilson lived and studied in Hong Kong during the colonial era. He observed firsthand the anti-democratic and anti-communist ethos that permeated the colonial society imposed upon the Chinese people there. However, the experience awakened in him a lifelong admiration for China’s culture and revolutionary history. The question for Canadians, “What is Socialism with Canadian Characteristics?” has been inspired by the Chinese political journey.
