Letter to the Toronto Star, April 26.
Re War poet remembered, April 26:
For example, in his travels across Canada, Brooke met Duncan Campbell Scott whom the reviewer describes as the "now notorious assimilationist Canadian poet and Department of Indian Affairs mandarin." Scott believed the best future for our first nations was assimilation into the European culture.
That was a common feeling a century ago. Today, some consider it notorious. A century from now, who knows?
