“Haiti Betrayed is a searing indictment of Canadian leaders’ complicity in the international oppression of this long-suffering nation. The film reveals how Canada, in contravention of international law, allied with the US and France to overturn the democratically elected government in 2004. This story is important for Canadians to come to terms with because we’d like to think that our government, our institutions,are actually playing an empowering and a supportive role for the establishment of democracy in Haiti; fighting poverty, building social programs. But unfortunately, if you look carefully at the record, that’s exactly what’s not happening.” – VanCity Theatre
