In his 1992 historical play The Cavan Blazers, Robert Winslow suggests that the strife between Catholics and Protestants in mid‐nineteenth century Ontario could have been averted, if only both parties had talked to each other. However, the text indicates that no dialogue was ever possible not only because the two groups have conflicting collective memories, but because they both see themselves as victims, of each other.
