MY COUNTRY, CANADA OR QUEBEC?


122 pp, 8 3/4" H. "Mme Rolland writes with passion about Canada on the eve of its Centennial. She talked to provincial premiers, housewives, academics, and journalists, and found an amazing variety of responses. If her question, 'Quebec or Canada?' constantly drives her back to her own history and people, it also produces some surprises about the other so-called Canadians. The west regards the French-English problem as foreign to itself, something for Ontario and Quebec to solve. French-Canadian minorities outside Quebec live in the shadow of Big Brother, the English Canadian. Maritimers and Quebeckers, proud of their provinces and history, look down on each other as parochial. And Toronto, supposedly the heart of English resistance to Quebeckers, seems surprisingly to welcome the French-Canadian assertion. Read this book - find out how a native Quebecoise feels about you, your attitudes, your ignorance, and your indifference towards her, your fellow Canadian. You may grow angry with what she has to say, but you will care more about Canada." Very minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has two tiny edge tears archivally taped, some small areas of light edge wrinkling, light rubbing and a few tiny scuffs, two tiny dents on rear hinge, small dent/crease on spine.
