Canada 150 – Asian Heritage Month Film Festival
Asian Heritage Month Concert and Art Showcase of Asian Canadian Artists
Harold Adams Innis, a political economist, is widely credited with initiating an important discourse on media from a distinctly Canadian perspective. He directly influenced Marshall McLuhan and continues to be a central figure in communications theory. His war experience, during which he saw Canadian soldiers used as cannon-fodder by the British, marked him for life: not only did he become a dedicated pacifist, he became interested in the way marginalized, colonial nations developed a sense of culture in the shadow of larger, empire-building nations. After the war, Innis studied political economy at the University of Chicago where he did his Ph. As a young professor at the University of Toronto, Innis was concerned that Canadians were being deluged with American material, so he set about to remedy that deficit. For his first book, The History of the Fur Trade in Canada , he retraced many of the routes of the early fur traders.

The two characters connect by sharing a joke together, but their laughter eventually fades as they settle back into silence.
