    SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement in partnership with the BC Civil Liberties Association and Pivot Legal Society present a talk and panel discussion: The Independent Investigations Office (IIO or Office) was established to conduct criminal investigations into incidents that involve B.C. police officers and result in death or serious harm. It is a civilian-led Office that has been established in accordance with the recommendations made by the Braidwood and the Davies Inquiries. The long term goal is to set a new standard for civilian-led investigation and accountability that will enhance the public’s faith in the dedicated officers working to keep them safe. The Chief Civilian Director Richard Rosenthal has stated that the public can expect an investigative approach that will be transparent, accountable and fair to citizens and to those who may be subject to an IIO investigation.

    Funded by Government of Canada and Royal Roads University, the two-part documentary series comprises 27 short stories exploring sites of memory across the country linked with the First and Second World Wars. Dr. Geoffrey Bird directed and produced the documentary. The documentary series explores sites of memory that offer insight into our nation’s past. These stories connect and engage us in a new way, looking at the war not from the perspective of battlefields overseas but from places in Canada that were shaped by war. The history is recounted by ‘guardians of remembrance,’ historians, guides and storytellers who offer insight into what happened and why. The documentary provides a gateway to new insights into the significance of this heritage as well as an opportunity to commemorate this shared national experience. This 16-part series features stories from sites of memory in Canada related to the Second World War. Conversation kits that include discussion questions and activities for students and the public, along with web links and ideas for additional resources are available for each story and accessible online. Please note, each vignette opens with 20 seconds of silence. During the Second World War, Britain’s Royal Air Force (RAF) created a specialized unit called Bomber Command. The RAF’s mission was to conduct nighttime air attacks on enemy targets in occupied Europe. One-third of RAF Bomber Command pilots were Canadian. In 1942, the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) launched its own Bomber Command group, based in England.

    Capitalism is a nimble shapeshifter. In this talk Jules Boykoff draws from the history of the Olympic Games to offer a theory of “celebration capitalism,” a form of modern-day economics that complements Naomi Klein’s “disaster capitalism” marked by neoliberalism: privatization, deregulation, and free-market rhetoric.
