Becoming Canada by Ken Dryden( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this passionate, thought-provoking vision for Canada, Ken Dryden argues that we have paid a price for having the wrong sense of ourselves as a country. The old definition of Canada ' genial but sometimes too self-deprecating and ambition-killing ' is no longer the real story. Through recent global events such as Barack Obama's election and first year in office; the climate conference in Copenhagen; and even the 2010 Winter Olympics, Dryden explores the clash between politics and story, and the importance of a nation finding its true narrative in order to thrive. By tracing the ups and downs in contemporary Canadian politics, from the Liberal leadership race to Stephen Harper's Conservative minority governments, Michael Ignatieff's appointment as Opposition leader, and prorogation, Ken Dryden presciently identifies the obstacles facing Canada. He observes a sea change taking place among Canadians, who want something more for their country. The ambition of Canada's policies and the nature of our politics will not change, Dryden says, until we conceive of a new story for the nation. Becoming Canada is at once a celebration of Canada and a timely, ardent rallying cry to all Canadians to build upon Canada's unique place in the world. It is certain to inspire new conversations about our Canada's identity at home and abroad. From the Hardcover edition

Growing up Canadian : play( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canada's biggest playground, winter, leads the way as we look at a century of play for Canadian kids. In the beginning you made your own gear and toys, but some store-bought things were irresistible. What Canadian girl, in her time, wouldn't want an Eaton's Beauty doll or a Barbara Ann Scott doll? And what boy, swept up in a cowboy craze, wouldn't die to have a Gene Autry gun or a Lash LaRue whip?"--Container
Canada's Amazon : A Boreal Forest Journey( Visual )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wrapping like a green cloak around the shoulders of Canada, from Newfoundland & Labrador to British Columbia and the Yukon, the boreal forest covers over 50 per cent of Canada's landmass. Along with the Amazon Rainforest and the Russian Boreal, it is one of only three great forests left on Earth. The Canadian Boreal presents one of the last and best opportunities in the world to protect vast tracts of undisturbed wilderness. The film follows two canoe trips through the forest, showcasing the magnificent Nahanni River in the Northwest Territories and the more industrialized Athabasca River in Northern Alberta. Each trip includes a host of engaging characters, ranging from scientists and conservationists to local First Nations people and well-known Canadians. The Athabasca trip features David Suzuki, world-renowned ecologist David Schindler and NHL great Ken Dryden. On the Nahanni River, Justin Trudeau retraces the route taken by his father more than 30 years ago, a trip that led to the creation of the Nahanni National Park Reserve."--CBC documentaries Website
