When must a current government attempt to come to terms with the wrongs of governments long past? In A Bare and Impolitic Right Bohdan Kordan and Craig Mahovsky examine the internment of Ukrainian Canadians during the Great War and explore the political, philosophical, and ethical dimensions of redress. Situating the campaign for Ukrainian-Canadian redress within a wider discussion on political leadership and transitional justice, the authors argue that, by reaffirming the values that are central to a rule-based society, symbolic redress might not only play an important role in reconciling the past with present and future generations but also aid the country to reconnect with those foundational traditions that inform Canadian political culture.
