Douglas Vs. Manning

Presented by the University of Regina’s History Department, this colloquium is subtitled The Political and Religious Battle Over Medicare In Postwar Canada.

Participants will be discussing competing models of universal healthcare that were developed in Saskatchewan under the CCF government of Tommy Douglas and in Alberta under the Social Credit government headed by Ernest Manning. As the sub-title indicates, those visions were informed by both both political and religious values of the two premiers in the period from 1940s to the 1960s.

Douglas Vs. ManningĀ goes Friday, Jan. 9 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in room 348 in the university’s AdHum building. For more information, visit the university’s website.
