dc.description.abstractHMCS Haida is one of 27 tribal class ships built for the British, Canadian, and Australian navies in the 1930s and 1940s. It is the only one that survives today. The ship is now the focal point of Parks Canada’s HMCS Haida National Historic site in Hamilton, Ontario.en
dc.description.sponsorshipFunded 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.en
