Confederation was a success.

Canada is now Canada. All it took was a little scuffle and the reassurance that this really was a unique political moment in the history of the world. Thanks to all those who supported the fight for, and even against, the union that happened 145 years ago.

The Great Confederation Debate

Looking for something to do this Canada Day? Well, The Four Winds Collective is working together with Black Creek Pioneer Village to discuss the merits and worries this great union imposed on the minds of the politicians and citizens of 1867.

The Great Confederation Debate
Written by Andrew Gaboury

With Geoffrey Rutherford as Father of Confederation, James Cockburn
Andrew Gaboury as the fictional politician of Black Creek, Edweard Chance

July 1st, 2012

With shows at 12:00, 1:30 & 3:30 on the Town Hall Green. There is sure to be unbridled emotion, sound rhetoric, and fancy hats.

Come and meet Mr.’s Cockburn and Chance as they will be strolling about the village in between shows trying to garner support for or against confederation.

It is sure to be a merry time for all.

Vic Harbour: Cast & Crew, pt. IX

And we finish with the last member of the Vic Harbour team; the Grand-Founder and deity who built the bridge into Vic Harbour with nothing but his mind:

Peter Counter

The playwright himself.

Peter Counter is a playwright living in Toronto and dying in the future (probably). His past credits include Echo, a one woman show written for Theatre Elysium, and most recently The Four Winds Collective’s adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Rat’s in the Walls (co-written with Andrew Gaboury (see below)). When not writing plays Peter writes infrequently (self-)published pop-culture centric personal essays. It is an absolute privilege to collaborate with such an enthusiastic and attractive team of artists to tell a story that is very close to his heart.
