Benjamin West's Death of General Wolfe

Last week, I posted about an upcoming debate in Toronto on the consequences of the British conquest of New France. A podcast of the debate is now available online. The debaters with Bernard Landry and J.L. Granatstein.

He is the Distinguished Research Professor of History Emeritus at York University and the author of more than 60 books. In 1992 the Royal Society of Canada awarded him the J.B. Tyrrell Historical Medal and in 1997 he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada.

Desmond Morton is a historian who specializes in Canadian military history. Morton is a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and in 1996 was made an Officer of the Order of Canada.
