Featuring Guest Speaker
A celebrated secondary school teacher of history and government in Ontario, Nathan Tidridge won the Premier’s Award for Teaching Excellence (Teacher of the Year, 2008). He is the author of The Queen at the Council Fire, Beyond Mainland, Canada’s Constitutional Monarchy, and Prince Edward, Duke of Kent.
As we reflect upon Canada’s evolution from British colony to leading member of The Commonwealth of Nations, Mr. Tidridge will speak about his book The Queen at the Council Fire, the first book to examine the Covenant Chain relationship since its inception. In particular, the book explores the role of what Walter Bagehot calls ‘the Dignified Crown,’ which, though constrained by the traditions of responsible government, remains one of the few institutions able to polish the Covenant Chain and help Canada along the path to reconciliation.
A highlight of his talk will be the St. Catherine’s chapel at Massey College which has just been designated as a Chapel Royal by Her Majesty the Queen as an act of reconciliation between the Crown and Indigenous peoples.
