October 27, Saturday

The Beaverton Presents “Glorious and/or Free” hosted by the Lake Country Museum and Archives.

Date/Time: Saturday, October 27th at 7:30 pm
Location: Creekside Theatre, 10241 Bottom Wood Lake Rd, Lake Country, BC V4V 1Y7
Ticket Cost: $29 including fees and charges

Join Alex Huntley, television writer, editor, and author for The Beaverton, for a journey through a satirical history of Canada with excerpts from the book Glorious and/or Free: The True History of Canada. From the lens of Canada’s leading satirical news publication, the comedian-turned-historian takes audiences on an adventure through time skewering the country’s legends and stories with news headlines, historical artifacts, and original art (adjusted for historical accuracy).

Both hilarious and ruthlessly dark, the hour-long presentation will introduce audiences to little known facts from Canadian history, and will illuminate absurdities from colonization to
present day. It’s the story of how we became a ridiculous nation called Canada.
