Vatican II

Expériences canadiennes – Canadian experiences

Sous la direction de/Edited by Michael Attridge, Catherine E. Clifford et/and Gilles Routhier

Le deuxième concile du Vatican (1961-1965) fut l’un des événements religieux les plus importants du vingtième siècle. Au Canada, il coïncida avec une période de changements culturels et sociétaux sans précédent, entraînant chez les évêques catholiques canadiens un réexamen de la place et de la mission de l’Église dans le monde. Pendant quatre ans, les évêques catholiques canadiens se réunirent avec leurs collègues de partout dans le monde pour réfléchir aux questions urgentes qui se posaient à l’Église et en débattre. Ce livre bilingue étudie l’interprétation et la réception de Vatican II au Canada, analysant diverses questions, dont le rôle des médias, les réactions des autres chrétiens, les contributions des participants canadiens, l’impact du Concile sur la pratique religieuse et sa contribution à la progression du dialogue interreligieux.

The Second Vatican Council (1961-1965) was one of the most significant religious events of the twentieth-century. In Canada, it was part of a moment of unprecedented cultural and societal change, causing Canadian Catholics to reexamine the church’s place and mission in the world. For four years, Canadian Catholic bishops met with their peers from around the globe to reflect on and debate the pressing issues facing the church. This bilingual volume explores the interpretation and reception of Vatican II in Canada, looking at many issues including the role of the media, the reactions of other Christians, the contributions of Canadian participants, the council’s impact on religious practice and its contribution to the growth of inter-religious dialogue.

Vice et corruption à Montréal

1892-1970

C’était l'époque de Montréal, ville ouverte, de Montréal, la flamboyante. Les maisons de jeu et les loteries illégales fourmillaient. Pendant que les magnats du crime organisé s’enrichissaient, la ville de Montréal peinait à boucler son budget. Confrontée à d’importants problèmes financiers, qui s’accentueront dramatiquement au cours de la crise économique des années 1930, la métropole dut graduellement faire preuve d’inventivité en matière de fiscalité. La légalisation des jeux de hasard et d’argent représenta rapidement un enjeu important pour la municipalité. Après quatre décennies de luttes, le jeu sera finalement légalisé. C’est à partir de l’analyse d’archives municipales, juridiques et journalistiques que Magaly Brodeur lève le voile sur l’époque de la prohibition des jeux de hasard et d’argent au Canada. Elle retrace dans son ouvrage le parcours ­tortueux ayant mené à la modification de la législation sur le jeu. Grâce à cette étude originale, elle apporte un éclairage nouveau sur plusieurs débats contemporains, tels que le rôle de l’État dans la régulation et le management des jeux de hasard et d’argent, la corruption et la lutte contre le crime organisé, les relations entre les divers paliers de gouverne­ment ainsi que l’épineuse question du financement des dépenses publiques. Un voyage dans le temps au cœur de Montréal n’aura jamais été d’une actualité aussi frappante.

Voyageur

Grace Lee Nute

The Voyageur is the authoritative account of a unique and colorful group of men whose exploits, songs, and customs comprise an enduring legacy. French Canadians who guided and paddled the canoes of explorers and fur traders, the voyageurs were experts at traversing the treacherous rapids and dangerous open waters of the canoe routes from Quebec and Montreal to the regions bordering the Great Lakes and on to the Mackenzie and Columbia Rivers. During the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, explorers and fur traders relied on the voyageurs to open up the vast reaches of North America to settlement and trade.

Whence They Came

Deportation from Canada 1900 - 1935

Barbara Roberts, Foreword by Irving Abella

Until recently, immigration policy was largely in the hands of a small group of bureaucrats, who strove desperately to fend off “offensive” peoples. Barbara Roberts explores these government officials, showing how they not only kept the doors closed but also managed to find a way to get rid of some of those who managed to break through their carefully guarded barriers. Robert’s important book explores a dark history with an honest and objective style.

A Year Inland

The Journal of a Hudson’s Bay Company Winterer

Anthony Henday, a young Hudson’s Bay Company employee, set out from York Factory in June 1754 to winter with “trading Indians” along the Saskatchewan River. He adapted willingly and easily to their way of life; he also kept a journal in which he described the plains region and took note of rival French traders’ success at their inland posts. A copy of Henday’s journal was immediately sent to the company directors in London. They rewarded Henday handsomely although they were uncertain where he had travelled, what groups he had met on the plains, and what success he had in opposing rival French traders. Since then, uncertainty about Henday’s year inland has increased. The original journal disappeared; only four copies, dating from 1755 to about 1782, are extant. Each text differs from the other three; the differences range from variant spellings to word choice to contradictory statements on vital questions. All four copies are the work of a company clerk, later factor, named Andrew Graham, who used them to support his own views on HBC trading policies. Twentieth-century scholars have based their claims for Henday’s importance as an explorer, trader and observer of Native cultures on a poorly edited transcript of the 1782 text. They have been unaware or careless of the journal’s textual ambiguity. A Year Inland presents all four copies for the first time, together with contextual notes and a commentary that reassesses the journal’s information on plains geography, people and trade.
