Lunch and Lecture with Dr. Callum Beck

July 7 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The electoral district of Third Queens, of which Orwell was part, was home to the second worst election riot in Canadian history. About 500 Scottish Presbyterians and Irish Catholics spent the afternoon exercising their franchise with sticks, and at least three people were killed. Dr Callum Beck (UPEI) has done an in-depth study of this devastating event and will be publishing a book on it soon through Island Studies Press. In this talk he will recount the story, the factors which caused it, and discuss the long-term impact of the riot on Island history.
