Anyone who wonders what inspires the United Conservative Party government's peculiar obsession with how history ought to be taught, and to what end, probably needs to look no further than Christian P. Champion.

Dr. Champion, PhD, as is now well known to social media readers in Alberta, holds startling views on the topic of how to teach history to schoolchildren.

For one thing, Champion wrote in a recent edition of the small but pretentious journal he founded nine years ago and still edits, learning about First Nations and the need for reconciliation in the study of Canadian history is just "an ongoing fad."
