An interactive discussion on Canadian history

The first episodes of Canada: The Story of Us sparked a passionate debate among Canadians. We heard criticism from groups who felt left out, some who felt misrepresented, and others who don't think history should be condensed into short stories with dramatic storytelling.

In response to public reaction, last week we announced we would be holding a series of live digital conversations to share some of these diverse perspectives.

Tonight, you can join the conversation too, in English or in French. Moderated by CBC Montreal's Mike Finnerty, a panel of experts will answer questions and keep this important dialogue on Canada's history going.
