Our Next Speaker

556th Meeting

12 April 2022

Gordon Reed

THE STORIES BEYOND THE PICTURES

Canadian Rangers provide a military presence in support of Canada's sovereignty. They report unusual activities, collect data of significance in support of military operations, and conduct surveillance and sovereignty patrols as required. Gordon Reed will speak from the perspective of a career with the Canadian Rangers in the Yukon that has spanned 30 years.

Born in Whitehorse in the Yukon, Gordon Reed (Yeil S'ixi) is a Teslin Tlingit citizen. He was appointed Chief Peacemaker by the Teslin Tlingit Justice Council in 2014. Gordon also serves as a civilian with the Department of National Defence, working with the Sexual Misconduct Response Centre. Gordon is currently a Ranger with the Carcross Patrol, 1 Canadian Ranger Patrol Group.

The meeting will be hosted on Zoom by Prof. Luke Copland (University of Ottawa), beginning at 7.30 pm EDT (talk begins at 8.00 pm). Access is via https://uottawa-ca.zoom.us/j/96399468290?pwd=SVQ0cmU0Z3luSFRRRDJ3ZGlyejZvZz09 The Meeting ID is 963 9946 8290 and the Passcode is Arctic2022.

This meeting will be the last of The Arctic Circle’s 2021-22 season. Regrettably, due to the pandemic, there will be no Annual Dinner in April but we may be able to arrange some sort of social function later in the summer or early autumn. In any event, we will reconvene in October, hopefully in person at our usual venue, the RCAF Officers Mess in Ottawa.

A HAPPY, HEALTHY AND SAFE SUMMER TO ALL!
