The Diefenbaker Centre Needs You!
The Diefenbaker Canada Centre (DCC) at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon is working on a new exhibit, “One Canada: Diefenbaker’s Vision.” The exhibit tells the story of how Diefenbaker used politics to focus attention on the needs of the average men and women, and at his attempts to bring about positive change for them. If you have letters, pictures, pamphlets, placards, objects and anything else Dief-related that they can borrow, the DCC would like to hear from you! They are also looking for people to contribute stories about your experiences with “the Chief.” “One Canada” will be open from early-May until 2019.
