The Canadian Imagination

What it means to be Canadian; examining and reworking Canada as a nation.

Hope

I am so incredibly grateful to live in a country where complete strangers band together to push another stranger's car out of the snow, where "sorry" and "thank you" are still everyday pieces of conversational currency, and where political differences of opinion are decided through pies-in-the-face and political satire rather than through gunfire. There is no place in the world that does not have its problems, we are no exception, and this blog is trying to address a fair many of them: but I think we maybe have something worth building on, here.

Yeah for Canada! We should export pies (instead of guns) to other nations and then send advisors to train their people how to use the pies for conflict resolution. Great idea!
