Antony Anderson is a Toronto documentary writer and director who has produced numerous projects with the Dominion Institute. He is passionately interested in Canadian history in general and Lester Pearson in particular. This site is the culmination of years of research and interviews.
In conjunction with
THE DOMINION INSTITUTE
In 1997, a group of young professionals, concerned about the erosion of a common memory and civic identity in Canada, formed the Dominion Institute – a national charitable organization dedicated to creating active and informed citizens through greater knowledge and appreciation of the Canadian story. Using groundbreaking public opinion research and innovative TV, new media and in-school programs, the Institute helps hundreds of thousands of Canadians connect in meaningful ways with the country’s history, shared citizenship and democratic institutions and values.
This site was made possible by the generous support of
THE DONNER CANADIAN FOUNDATION
The Donner Canadian Foundation seeks to encourage individual responsibility and private initiative to help Canadians solve their social and economic problems. It was established in 1950 by William H. Donner. In the mid-1960s it was decided that DCF should focus on specific program interests, among these research on public policy. The Donner family chose Canada’s centennial year, 1967, to embark on a course of professional grant-making that has contributed over $100 million to more than 1,000 projects across Canada. The Foundation’s grant-making continues under the guidance of a Board of Governors composed of the Donner family and eminent Canadians from a variety of fields.
