Dr. Brian McDougall

Brian McDougall is a retired federal public servant, past and current university teacher, and life-long trade union and social activist. He draws upon his academic training (Ph.D. in Sociology, MA in Canadian Studies from Carleton), his extensive experience in a wide variety of social movements (Indigenous rights, anti-war, anti-racism, pro-choice, gay rights, etc.) and his recent activity as the owner of a historical walking tour business in Ottawa (Peoples’ History Walking Tours) to introduce people to a radical new understanding of Ottawa’s history. Often provocative, but never boring, Brian’s tours help residents and tourists to experience this city in novel and unforgettable ways. (Peoples’ History Walking Tours: ottawahistorytours.com).
