Description

Home to 75% of the world's mining companies, Canada is the imperial power that is seldom discussed. While the election of Justin Trudeau was thought to bring progressive change, it's been more of the same capital driven environmental and labor abuse under the charade of enlightened imagery. Is Canada benefiting from an incorrect assumption of progressivism? Or is Canada another “Usual Suspect” in the global game of empire and conquest?


 
About Owen Schalk:
Owen Schalk is a writer from Winnipeg, Manitoba. He grew up in the countryside surrounded by rural emptiness, abandoned houses, and farm-loving German Canadians who tried and failed to instil their love of farming in him. He found his artistic curiosity while reading the usual canon, and found his voice while reading Pynchon, DeLillo, Bolaño, and other authors who write with a critical eye for dominant social and political doctrines.


 
Owen’s short stories have been distributed by a variety of print and online publishers, including The Paragon Press, The Anti-Languorous Project, and whimperbang. Additionally, his academic work has been rewarded with a number of scholarships and awards in Manitoba.
