Myths for Profit

Myths for Profit is an award-winning documentary by Montreal filmmaker Amy Miller that challenges the popular conception that Canada is a global good guy by reviewing our dismal record in international development, national defence policy and peacekeeping. Peace Alliance Winnipeg and Project Peacemakers screened this video and hosted a panel discussion at the Millennium Library Feb. 18, 2012. Moderated by Glenn Michalchuk, chair of Peace Alliance Winnipeg, the panel was composed of:

  • Dennis Lewycky: Dennis is the Executive Director of the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg, with extensive experience in community development in several countries including Belize, Botswana, Colombia, Tanzania, Israel, various Caribbean islands, Pakistan and Uganda.
  • Roger Annis: Roger chairs the Canada-Haiti Action Network and has decades of experience in international solidarity work.

Because we were only able to license the documentary for broadcast, this program will not be available on YouTube.
