A Propaganda System – book by Yves Engler How Canada’s government, corporations, media and academia sell war and exploitation (Published Sep. 17 2016) Ken Hiebert, Nanaimo BC

Yves Engler is a passionate writer and a passionate speaker. And if it is possible to be a passionate researcher, he is that as well. In mid-November Engler was on Vancouver Island, speaking in Victoria, Nanaimo and Courtenay, before heading over to Powell River. He was touring with his new book, A Propaganda System. See LINK: https://yvesengler.com/

Engler is not bringing to light secrets, but rather information that is on the public record. Typically this information is out of reach of the average citizen, those of us who do not have hours to plough through reams of documents. How many of us knew that the Canadian military spends hundreds of millions on public relations and then makes an effort to obscure this fact? How many of us knew that Canadian Press was set up by the Canadian government during World War I to generate support for Canada's war effort? His books are full of such revelations and I am happy to recommend them. ♣
