A book I've been reading, by John Ralston Saul, one of Canada's great thinkers, is A Fair Country, in which Saul makes that argument. He also says that Canada has an increasingly ineffective elite, a colonial non-intellectual business elite that doesn’t believe in Canada, and this has to be re-thought in order to move forward.
It's the rare book that offers its readers epiphanies that are at once startling and obvious. These Aha! moments are to be cherished. A Fair Country will change the way we view ourselves as a nation." -- Joseph Boyden
