The Diefenbaker Canada Centre (DCC) at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon is working on a new exhibit, “One Canada: Diefenbaker’s Vision.” The exhibit tells the story of how Diefenbaker used politics to focus attention on the needs of the average men and women, and at his attempts to bring about positive change for them.
 
Diefenbaker always maintained his connections to Saskatchewan. Even though he served as an MP in Ottawa throughout much of his life, he often came back to visit and always called this province his home. Many people have memories about him and some even have souvenirs that are related to him. The DCC is looking for some of these items to include in the exhibit. If you have letters, pictures, pamphlets, placards, objects and anything else Dief-related that we can borrow, we’d like to hear from you! We are also looking for people to contribute stories about your experiences with “the Chief.” Email or call us if you’re willing to share! “One Canada” will be open from early-May until 2019.
