Our film was changed because Vancouver filmmaker Elaine Briere needed more time to edit Dangerous Hope: Canada’s Betrayal of Democracy in Haiti before its release. We look forward to seeing her and her new film when we are able to screen films again. Instead, we chose to offer a related film by Montreal-based filmmaker Amy Miller about NATO and Canada’s escalating misuse of our military.
Myths for Profit depicts the historical context for Canada’s gradual transition from altruistic peacekeeper to our current role as an active participant in unprovoked military aggression. Why is Canada so eager to support the slaughter of civilians on the other side of the globe? Released in 2009, but just as relevant today as the Canadian government continues to approve massive increases to our country’s military budget and ignore the human rights records of client countries like Saudi Arabia.
Watching this film is free (like people everywhere just want to be). Scroll down the page at Wide Open Exposure to watch Amy Miller’s eye-opening documentary about the blood on Ottawa’s hands.
